INTRODUCTION. 



I. REVOLUTIONARY RECORDS OF THE STATE. 

IN the compilation of the following Military and Naval record of Connecticut in the War of the 
Revolution, as called for by Act of the General Assembly approved April 13, 1887, various sources 
of information have been sought and examined. The original and official manuscripts bearing 
upon the history of that interesting period are, and long have been, in a more or less dispersed con 
ditiona fact true of the records of all the Thirteen States and in some instances the greater 
part has been either lost or destroyed. In the case of Connecticut, while certain gaps occur at 
intervals in the continuity of her Revolutionary Papers, the more valuable portions have fortunately 
been preserved and are deposited in permanent and accessible archives. Of this material, the State 
herself retains a considerable proportion, the Departments of the General Government at Washing 
ton contain much, and the remainder has passed by gift and purchase into the keeping of indi 
viduals, Societies, and Libraries throughout the country. For convenient reference the documents 
may be classified as follows : 

1. The original minutes of the proceedings of the General Assembly of Connecticut, covering 

the period of the war, on file in the office of the Secretary of State, Hartford. 

2. The original minutes of the proceedings of the Governor and Council, or Committee of 

War, covering the period of the war, on file in the State Library, Hartford. 

3. Pay-Rolls of the Connecticut Regiments in the Continental "Line" for certain years, and 

scattering pay -table accounts of State troops and militia, together with individual 
accounts, bound in twelve volumes, on file in the office of the State Comptroller, 
Hartford. 

4. Thirty-eight bound folio volumes, marked " Revolutionary War," covering a period of 

ten years or more from 1774, and containing numerous original rolls, letters, 
accounts, resolutions, petitions, town-lists, and similar material, unbound, on file in 
the State Library. 

5. Rolls, letters, and various documents bearing on the service of Connecticut troops, on file 

among the papers of General Washington in the Department of State, Washington, 
D. C. 

0. Forty-seven bound folio volumes, containing company and regimental muster and pay rolls 
of the regiments of the Connecticut "Line," together with numerous militia rolls and 
miscellaneous papers, and the large mass of applications for pensions, on file in the 
Pension Bureau, Department of the Interior, Washington, D. C. 

7. The "Trumbull Papers," consisting of twenty -two bound volumes, containing the official 
correspondence of Governor Jonathan Trumbull of Connecticut during the entire 
period of the war, inclusive also of many rolls and miscellaneous documents, in pos 
session of the Massachusetts Historical Society, Boston. 
2 (i) 



x CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

8. Various Revolutionary papers, military and naval, in possession of the Connecticut 

Historical Society, Hartford. 

9. Forty or more Orderly Books, kept by Connecticut officers during the war, containing 

general, division, brigade, and regimental orders issued in camp and on the march, 
in the possession for the most part of individuals and Societies. 

10. Miscellaneous letters, rolls, maps, diaries, and other papers in the hands of descendants 
of Revolutionary soldiers, individuals, and collectors, or deposited in Libraries and 
State and Town archives. 

Supplementing these documents, and included among the authorities on which this work is 
based, must be mentioned the mass of original letters and papers which have found their way 
into print in such publications as Force s American Arch ires, the volumes issued by Historical 
Societies, magazines, genealogies, monographs, and Town histories. 



II. ARRANGEMENT OF THE ROLLS. 

The several rolls and lists in the following pages, compiled from the foregoing records, 
have been arranged chronologically according to the description of the service in which the 
troops engaged. Thus, after the first alarm, the Continental soldiers are classified in the order in 
which they were called out, then the State troops, and finally the Militia, with special lists following. 

The Lexington Alarm. The first lists in the record, grouped under the head of the "Out 
break of the War," include the names of the men who, under the provocation of the moment, 
marched to the relief of their Massachusetts neighbors in the Lexington Alarm. Some explanation 
of the nature of this service appears in the introductory text on pages 3 and 4. It will be observed 
that the forty-eight towns from which the companies set out represent, with three exceptions, the 
eastern and central counties, which were then the thickly settled sections of the State, the nearest 
to the point of danger, the best prepared for an emergency, and the most accessible in case of 
alarm. It may also be noticed that the four thousand townsmen who responded to the Lexington 
call were a representative body, largely descendants of original settlers, including all elements in 
the different communities, judges, pastors, lawyers, physicians, farmers, mechanics, sailors, labor 
ers, and that as a list of a respectable number of the male inhabitants of the State in 1775, which 
may be utilized in historical and genealogical researches, a peculiar interest attaches to it. Follow 
ing in their proper place are the names of the men engaged in the Ticonderoga enterprise. 

Continental Troops. Next in order have been arranged the rolls of the Connecticut quota of 
that part of the Revolutionary forces known as the " Continental " troops, which constituted the 
body of Washington s army in the field throughout the war. They stand first in importance, as 
explained on page IU, and as appears from their military history in the text introductory to the 
subdivisions A, B, C, and D, under which they have been classified. After the Lexington Alarm 
the State raised eight regiments, which were adopted as Continental, to serve to the close of the 
year 1775. She furnished eight for the year 1770, and eight, with a large additional quota, for the 
three years term from 1777 to 1781. Thereafter, from 17X1 to 1783, the numbers were reduced by 
consolidations. The rosters of these troops form a large portion of the record (pages 33 to 370), 
and with the exception of some of the rolls for 1775 and the greater part of those for 177G, are 
believed to be substantially complete. In view of the importance of the campaign of 1776, it is to 
be regretted that the rolls of seven of the Continental regiments for that year are missing. The 
names of very many of the men, however, appear on the rolls of 1775, when they served their first 
term, or on the rolls of 1777, when they re-enlisted for three years or the war, or again on the 
rolls of State troops and militia in subsequent years. In the absence of these lists the number of 
officers and soldiers that entered the Continental service from Connecticut during the war can only 
be approximately estimated; but it may be placed at about fifteen thousand. 



INTRODUCTION. Xl 

State Troops. tinder this heading appear a certain number of regiments which were neither 
Continental nor militia, but were raised mainly in the .early part of the war, to act as reinforce 
ments for the army in the field, for limited terms. Organized by authority of the State or the 
Governor, with the officers commissions signed by the Governor, they were designated as State 
troops, and at different periods rendered considerable service. 

The Militia. The third distinctive class of troops was the standing Militia of the State, 
whose rolls, so far as preserved, are arranged, like the preceding, in chronological order. Here 
again several serious gaps occur in the list, which is a special misfortune from a historical point 
of view, inasmuch as the militia represented the greater part of the male population of the State. 
The rolls here published, however, represent a fair proportion of the regiments and men that were 
called into active service. From the return, as given on page 447, for the year 1782, it may be 
inferred that the number of effective militia varied during the years of the war from twenty-two 
to twenty-five thousand. 

Miscellaneous Rolls. The closing pages of the work contain such portions of the Naval 
record of Connecticut as have been preserved among the documents, also unclassified lists of 
minutemen, volunteers, independent companies, and individual officers and soldiers, and copies 
of the Pension lists as published in Congressional and Government documents at various periods 
since the war. 

In compiling and arranging the rolls, as grouped above, a limited amount of explanatory 
text has been inserted, showing where and for what terms the troops served. It has been possible 
to do this with a satisfactory degree of accuracy in the case of the regiments of the Continental 
" Line," and on pages 125-140 and 301-311 may be found an outline of their organization and serv 
ice generally battles, encampments, itinerary, and formations which has been prepared from 
original letters and Order-books. An introductory note also appears before each regimental roster. 
In the case of many of the militia regiments and detachments, no record of service has been found. 

The publication of this work will doubtless lead to the production or discovery of missing 
documents, including rolls of entire regiments, companies, or the record of individuals, which it 
may be desirable to issue in supplementary form in the future. It is especially requested that the 
originals or copies of these may be forwarded to the Adjutant-General of Connecticut at Hartford. 

III. RELATION OF THE STATE TO THE WAR. 

The number of separate names in the following lists, as arranged in the Index, reaches a 
total of twenty-seven thousand eight hundred and twenty -three. In a few cases, probably, through 
different spelling of names, the same individual has been entered more than once. On the other 
hand, it is to be observed that in numerous cases the same name represents different individuals. 
Thus, in the Lexington Alarm list, the William Lyon, of New Haven, could not have been the 
William Lyon of Woodstock, nor Lieut. William Adams, of the Fourth "Connecticut Line" for 
1777-81, be either of the privates of the same name in his regiment. In the Index, however, these 
five individuals count only as two William Lyon and William Adams. The identity of others, 
owing to the absence of a "residence" column in many of the rolls, cannot always be distin 
guished. From these circumstances it is evidently impossible to give the exact number of different 
individuals of whom some record has been entered. A total of thirty thousand may be 
accepted as a reasonable estimate. Of this number some ten thousand represent Continental 
soldiers men who had enlisted for long terms and served in the field outside of the State 
under Washington s immediate command. A complete record, as already indicated, would em 
brace several thousand additional names, especially of the militia. From expressions used 
by Governor Trumbull in his correspondence, the wording of the calls for temporary service, 
and the make-up of town militia lists, it is apparent that, barring a small loyalist element 
in the western part of the State, nearly every able-bodied man in Connecticut rendered, or 



Ill

was enrolled as notified and prepared to render, some kind of service during the Revolutionary 
War. The exposed situation of the State, with her entire coast subject to incursions and ravages 
by the enemy and her proximity to the several fields of operations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, 
and New York, required her to remain in a constant state of preparation. On this account, and 
because of the size of her population, then relatively large, she was regarded as one of the four 
strong States supporting the cause, ranking in capacity next after Massachusetts, Virginia, and 
Pennsylvania. How far the State was represented with her neighbors in the fortunes of the war, 
sharing with them both success and defeat, is a matter of general history, confirmed by the record 
in the following pages, from which it appears that after the Lexington Alarm, Connecticut troops 
participated in all the principal battles, with the exception of those fought in the extreme Southern 
field. They were present and engaged at the

A. THE LEXINGTON ALARM. 




r HE Revolutionary record of Connecticut opens with her response to the historic Lexington 
alarm of April 19, 1775, and closes eight years and a half later with the disbandment, 
after the Peace, of her last regiment in the field, in November, 1783. 

The attitude assumed by the colonists at the beginning of the struggle was that of vigilance 
and self-defense. Alarmed by the determination of the home government, openly declared within 
recent years, to establish its authority more firmly in America, they entered vigorous protests against 
the new policy as tending to endanger certain privileges of their own, assured to them by charter or 
long enjoyment. While differing somewhat from each other, either in creed, temperament, descent, or 
manners, the people in the several colonies, or the great majority of them, stood politically, in 1775, 
on the common platform of non-interference in their local affairs. They advocated home-rule com 
bined with loyalty to the general interests of the British Empire, which, in effect, represents the 
relations existing between England and her larger dependencies at the present day. In this sense the 
cause of any one of the American colonies was the cause of all. An attempt upon the privileges 
of one was a threat against all. An alarm sounded in one locality was bound to spread by common 
sympathy to every other. 

In Connecticut, especially in her eastern section, this colonial spirit took deep root, and when 
Massachusetts, in 1774, was made the subject of restrictive measures by the home ministry, general 
indignation was aroused. As the possibility of a collision became apparent town meetings were held, 
contributions of money and provisions were voted for the distressed inhabitants of Boston, whose 
port had been closed by act of Parliament, non-intercourse with British merchants advised, a gen 
eral congress representing all the colonies proposed, and Committees of Correspondence appointed 
to circulate all news of importance. A convention of delegates from the two counties of New 
London and Windham, held at Norwich, September 8, 1774, went further and recommended their 
towns to keep up their stock of ammunition and attend to the exercise of the train-bands. In the 
Assembly of the Colony, which in May, 1774, adopted resolutions protesting against the recent acts 
of Parliament touching America, the drift of events was so far recognized, that, in October, it 
required the selectmen of the towns to provide a double quantity of "powder, balls, and flint," and 
in January, 1775, ordered the entire militia to muster and drill once a week during the three months 
following. The situation was characterized as " an alarming crisis." 

The crisis culminated on April 10, 1775. A detachment of British troops marching out from 
Boston to seize military stores alleged to have been collected at Concord for hostile purposes, was 
met upon the road by the Provincials and a bloody encounter took place. The since famous skir 
mishes of Lexington and Concord were fought, which precipitated the Revolutionary War. An 
"alarm" was immediately spread in every direction, so that on the 27th of April it had reached the 
principal points as far as Baltimore, and by the llth of May was posted at Charleston, S. C. 
Throughout New England the news was rapidly carried by horse "expresses" from town to town. 
It was dispatched to Connecticut by the Massachusetts Committee of Safety at Watertown during 
the progress of the fighting, or "near ten o clock" of Wednesday morning, April 19th: "The bearer, 
Israel Bessel, is charged to alarm the country quite to Connecticut, and all persons are desired to 
furnish him with fresh horses as they may be needed." During Thursday, the 20th, the news was 
circulating through the eastern part of the Colony. The people of Windham County received it

generally by noon. It reached Governor Trurnbull at Lebanon not long after. It was doubtless at 
Hartford before night ; at New Haven on the following evening, Friday, the 21st, and forwarded 
from there through Fairfield and Stamford to New York. 

Prepared to a certain extent for such an alarm, a large number of able-bodied men in Con 
necticut hurried off to Massachusetts. The wording used in the records of the day, " marched for the 
relief of Boston," expresses alike the extent of their sympathies and the nature of the service 
intended. The response to the alarm was not the official action of the Colony, nor, on the other 
hand, an impromptu movement ?f individuals without previous organization. An "uprising" of 
armed men might have partaken of a mob character, and the militia regiments as such could only 
be called out by the governor or legislature. It was rather a movement of the townsmen marching 
under their militia organizations. The gathering thus became orderly as well as spontaneous, 
and represented the town spirit shown previously in protests and resolutions. It appears from 
the records that in some cases the companies or train-bands collected and marched off under their 
officers without further orders : in other cases, the colonels taking the lead, called out a certain 
number of their men and directed them to march forthwith to the point of danger ; in a few cases 
volunteer companies were organized for the special service ; in addition, many individuals, not be 
longing to the militia, joined in the march, either providing for themselves or going with the com 
panies. Colonel Williams of the llth Regiment, sends out word on the 20th, "that it will be 
expedient for every man to go who is fit and willing." A letter dated Wethersfield, April 2.3d, de 
scribes the scene there as follows : " We are all in motion here, and equipt from the Town yester 
day, one hundred young men. who cheerfully offered their service, twenty-days provision and 
sixty -four rounds per man. They are all well armed and in high spirits. My brother has gone with 
them and others of the first property. Our neighboring towns are all arming and moving. Men of 
the first character shoulder their arms and march off for the field of action. We shall by night 

have several thousands from this Colony on their march We fix on our Standards and 

Drnms the Colony arms, with the motto qui transtulit sustinet, round it in letters of gold, which 
we construe thus : God, who transplanted us hither, will support us. Writing from Wallingford, 
April 24th, Mr. James Lockwood says : "Col. Wadsworth was over at this place most of yesterday 
and has ordered twenty men out of each Company of his Regiment, some of which had .already set 
off and others go this morning. . . . The Country beyond here are all gone." Nor were the 
Colony officials inactive. Upon receiving "the tragical narrative" from Massachusetts, Gov. 
Trumbull issued writs for a special meeting of the Assembly on the 20th, and the general Committee 
of Correspondence sent prompt assurance of assistance to President Hancock of the Massachusetts 
Provincial Congress. Writing from Lebanon on the 21st, the Committee say: "Every preparation 
is making to support your Province. . . . The ardour of our people is such that they can t be 
kept back. The Colonels are to forward part of the best men and the most ready, as fast as possi 
ble, the remainder to be ready at a moment s warning. These are the present movements with us." 

The number of men who are reported in the records to have marched in the Lexington alarm 
was about four thousand. The duty was necessarily temporary and brief. Some of the companies 
returned home before reaching Boston, as their presence was not needed. Upon the organization of 
regiments for service during the year, many of the same men enlisted and continued for different 
terms during the war. At the May session of the Legislature their service was recognized and the 
men paid for the time as given on the following lists, the originals of which are on file in the State 
Library, Rev. War, Vol. If.

B.-THE TICONDEROGA ENTERPRISE. 




r HE possession and control of Lakes George and Champlain had, from an early date, been 
regarded by the people of New York and New England as necessary to their protection 
against the encroachments of the French in Canada. It was around Ticonderoga and 
Crown Point that the greater part of the fighting in the French and Indian War occurred. When 
the Revolutionary struggle opened, the importance of those posts was at once recognized in the 
northern colonies, and far-sighted individuals in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York, alike 
proposed their immediate seizure. In addition Fort Ticonderoga contained cannon and stores just 
then much needed by the Provincials. The step seemed urgent inasmuch as England s hold on the 
Canadas was firmer than elsewhere in America, and the people of those provinces were not pre 
pared to disturb it. In the approaching contest, accordingly, the line of the St. Lawrence and the 
lake region would again become the field of military operations. 

In Connecticut and Massachusetts movements were set on foot to secure the old fortress at 
Ticonderoga immediately after the Lexington alarm. It was then garrisoned by Captain Delaplace 
of the Twenty-sixth Regiment, British army, and a small company of regulars. In Connecticut the 
enterprise originated, as reported by Capt. Edward Mott, one of the leaders engaged, in the follow 
ing manner: "A number of the principal gentlemen of the Assembly at Hartford, on Friday, the 
twenty-eighth day of April, Conversing on the distressed Condition of the people of Boston, and the 
means necessary to relieve them, fell on the Scheme to take that -Fortress [Ticonderoga], that we 
might have the advantage of the Cannon that were there, to relieve the people of Boston. I told 
the Gentlemen that in my opinion it might be taken by surprise with a few men, if properly Con 
ducted. On which they desired me, if I was willing to serve my country in that way, to join 
Captain Noah Phelps, of Simsbury, and Mr. Bernard Romans, on that design, and furnished us with 
three hundred Pounds in Cash from the Treasury, and desired us to go forward to the Upper Towns, 
and search into the situation of said Garrison, and, if I thought proper to proceed to take possession 
of the same." The gentlemen referred to by Mott, who on their individual notes procured the 
money from the Treasury, were Samuel Wyllys, Jesse Root, and Ezekiel Williams of Hartford, 
Samuel Bishop, Jr., and Adam Babcock, of New Haven, Samuel Holden Parsons, of New London, 
Silas Deane, of Wethersfield, William Williams, of Lebanon, Charles Webb, of Stamford, Joshua 
Porter, of Salisbury, and Thomas Mumford, of Groton. With this informal authority Captains Mott 
and Phelps, with six, or eight volunteers from Hartford, proceeded to Salisbury where the entire party 
was increased to sixteen. From that point they continued to Pittsfield, Mass., where Col James 
Easton, John Brown, Israel Dickinson, and about fifty men were enlisted in the enterprise. In the 
Hampshire Grants Col. Ethan Allen and Seth Warner, both natives of Connecticut, and one 
hundred Green Mountain Boys were added to the party, and early on May 10th the fortress was 
surprised and taken without loss. Capt. Phelps states in a memorial that when the expedition 
reached Bennington, a council of war was held which directed him and Mr. Hecock, from Sheffield, 
to proceed in disguise to the fort beforehand and report on its condition, which service he "cheer 
fully undertook." 

Of the Connecticut party, Capt. Mott, as chairman, Epaphras Bull, Noah Phelps, and Col. 
Easton, of Pittsfield, constituted a " Committee of War for the expedition against Ticonderoga and 
Crown Point," and by its authority the command of the expedition at the time of the surprise was 

(29)

given to Col. Ethan Allen. That officer, in reporting his success to the Massachusetts authorities, 
stated that the attempt was made "by the order of the General Assembly of the Colony of 
Connecticut." 

In Massachusetts an independent movement was undertaken. The Provincial Committee of 
Safety, which had previously inquired into the condition of affairs in Canada, appreciated the im 
portance of Ticonderoga, and it appears were urged to secure it by Benedict Arnold, who had then 
lately arrived with his New Haven Company in the Lexington Alarm. The Committee entrusted the 
undertaking to Arnold, and 011 May 3d appointed him "Colonel and Commander-in-Chief " of a 
body of men not exceeding four hundred which he was to enlist in Western Massachusetts and 
vicinity, and with them effect the capture of the fortress. Arnold started off alone and overtook 
the Connecticut expedition under Ethan Allen. By virtue of his Massachusetts commission lie 
demanded the sole command of the party, but upon its refusal to accept his leadership, he 
marched with it to the fort and entered the gate "side by side" with Col. Allen. Col. Arnold then 
enlisted a portion of the regiment authorized by the committee and occupied points on the lakes, at 
times being in command at Crown Point, which had also been seized, and again at Ticonderoga. 
On May 18th with fifty men under Captains Brown and Oswald he surprised St. John Oswald 
being one of the members of Arnold s New Haven Company. 

Following up this successful stroke, Governor Trumbull ordered one of the newly raised regi 
ments for the year 75, under Col. Hinman, to march immediately to Ticonderoga and Crown 
Point and occupy them. A request to this effect was also made by the Continental Congress. 
The Massachusetts Provincial Congress had informed Col. Arnold that as "the affairs of that expe 
dition began in the Colony of Connecticut," they had written to its Assembly to assume full charge 
of it. Upon the arrival of Col. Hinman, however, Arnold declined to serve under him and disband 
ing his small regiment, resigned his Massachusetts colonelcy June 24th, to appear next, in Septem 
ber, in command of the expedition through the Maine woods to Quebec. 

Upon the assumption in July of the command of Northern New York, or the Northern De 
partment as it was commonly known, by Major-Gen. Philip Schuyler, Fort Ticonderoga passed 
under the direction of the Continental authorities. It was held by the Americans throughout the 
war, except during the interval of the Burgoyne alarm and campaign from July to November, 1777. 

The following lists are arranged from the original MSS. in the State Library, Rev. War, 
Vol. III. The first list represents, as far as the records indicate, the party of sixteen which Capt. 
Mott states to have started from Connecticut in the first instance to become the nucleus of the 
expedition.

THE CONTINENTAL ARMY. 



THE following rosters of troops, arranged chronologically under the headings 
A, B, 0, and D, include the quotas contributed by Connecticut to what was 
known as the Continental Army of the Revolution. 

The term "Continental Army" first appears upon the printed records of the 
Continental Congress in the summary of the proceedings for June 14, 1775, where 
the form of enlistment to be subscribed by companies of riflemeu is given. It was 
to be an enlistment into "the American Continental Army." On the same day a 
Committee of five was appointed to prepare rules and regulations for the govern 
ment of this prospective army, which were reported and adopted on the 30th. On 
June 15th, it was resolved "That a General be appointed to command all the 
Continental forces, raised or to be raised, for the defence of American Liberty," 
and Washington was unanimously elected. 

At the opening of the War, or for the year 1775, no Continental force was 
in the first instance organized as such by Congress. As the New England Colonies 
were mustering their own troops around Boston and Ticonderoga after the Lexing 
ton alarm, Congress adopted them as Continental. Troops joining them from New 
York and elsewhere were generally recruited on the Continental basis. For the 
succeeding years of the war, Congress took the initiative and raised troops for the 
common army under its own regulations respecting pay, subsistence, and term of 
service. The force, as will appear, was organized and re-organized several tftnes 
and for various terms. 

These Continentals were the "regulars" of the Revolution. They formed the 
main army in the field and were the chief dependence of the Colonial cause. In 
arranging rosters of that war, accordingly, the Continental army occupies the 
central and most prominent place. All other troops raised during the war, 
whether State or militia, were to act as reinforcements of this army or to relieve it 
by serving in alarms at different points. They are so classified after the Continen 
tals. See "Arrangement of the Rolls" in the Introduction. 



(34) 



A. REGIMENTS FOR 1775. 



ORGANIZATION. The voluntary mustering in the Alarm of April 19th was followed 
immediately by the first authorized call for troops. On the 20th, upon the receipt of the Lex 
ington news, Gov. Trumbull summoned the General Assembly to a special session at Hartford 
to convene the following Wednesday, April 20th. Publishing the call on his own views of the 
emergency he also received urgent appeals from the Massachusetts authorities for aid and support. 
Under date of April 20th the Committee of Safety at Cambridge wrote to him as follows: "As the 
troops have now commenced hostilities, we think it our duty to exert our utmost strength to save our 
country from absolute slavery. We pray your Honours would afford us all the assistance in your power, 
and shall be glad that our brethren who come to our aid may be supplied with military stores and pro 
visions, as we have none of either more than is absolutely necessary for ourselves." Again on April 
2Gth they wrote: " The distressed situation in which we are, and the danger to which the liberties of all 
America, and especially the New England Colonies are exposed, will be the best apology for the 
importunate application to you for immediate assistance. We pray as you regard the safety of your 
country, that as large a number of troops as you can spare may immediately march forward." 

The Assembly met on the date indicated and held a ten days session, adjourning Saturday noon, 
May Gth. While preparing for resistance it refrained from aggressive declarations. It recognized the 
skirmishes at Lexington and Concord as "Sundry acts of hostility and violence committed in the Province 
of Massachusetts Bay, by which many lives have been lost," and through a committee of two of its 
members, as bearers of a letter from the Governor, requested General Gage at Boston to explain his 
military preparations and late incursion. Its attitude is represented in these expressions in the Gover 
nor s letter: "The people of this Colony, you may rely upon it, abhor the idea of taking up arms 
against the troops of their sovereign, and dread nothing so much as the horrors of a civil war. But, 
Sir, at the same time we beg leave to assure your Excellency, that as they apprehend themselves 
justified by the principle of self-defence, they are most firmly resolved to defend their rights and 
privileges to the last extremity; nor will they be restrained from giving aid to their brethren if any 
unjustifiable attack is made upon them." 

The leading measure of the session was An Act for assembling, equipping, etc., a Number of the 
Inhabitants of this Colony for the Special Defence and Safety thereof. It provided that one fourth part 
of the Colony militia should be forthwith enlisted, accoutred, and assembled, to be led and conducted as 
the General Assembly should order. This apportionment represented about six thousand men, who were 
to be distributed in six regiments of ten companies each, with a full complement of field, staff, and line 
officers. The entire body was to be commanded by one major-general and two brigadier-generals, each 
of whom was also to take command of a regiment as colonel. Arms, equipments, pay, billeting, and 
bounty money were provided, and "beating orders" delivered to the officers to recruit their compa 
nies by voluntary enlistment. The term of service was not to exceed seven months. 

At the third special session of the Assembly, convened July 1, 1775, two more regiments, somewhat 
smaller, were ordered, making eight in all, consisting of about seven thousand four hundred men. This 
included the entire number of troops called out by authority of the Colony, for service which took them 
beyond its limits, in the year 1775. The officers were all appointed by the Assembly. 

As Continental Troops. Accepting war as inevitable the Continental Congress at Philadelphia 
proceeded, as stated on page 34, to organize a Continental Army. The troops which had hurriedly gathered 

(35) 



36 CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

around Boston, including regiments from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and two of 
the Connecticut regiments referred to above, were already in the field as good material for the 
nucleus of such an army. Washington arrived in camp at Cambridge on July 3d, and the Colony 
troops having accepted his leadership and the regulations of Congress, the entire force was placed upon a 
Continental establishment. This new relation was officially announced by Washington in General Orders 
dated "Head Quarters, Cambridge, July 4, 1775," as follows: 

The Continental Congress having now taken all the Troops of the several Colonies, which have been raised, or which may be 
hereafter raised, for the support and defence of the Liberties of America into their Pay and Service; They are now the Troops of the 
United Provinces of North America; and it is to be hoped that all Distinctions of Colonies will be laid aside: so that one and the same 
spirit may animate the whole, and the only Contest be, who shall render on this great and trying occasion, the most essential Service to 
the great and common cause in which we are all engaged. 

Service. Of the eight Connecticut regiments organized as stated, five were ordered at different 
times during the summer to the Boston camps under Washington and three to the Northern Department un 
der Schuyler. The five were those of Generals Spencer and Putnam and Colonels Parsons, Charles Webb, 
and Huntington. With them also were four companies of the regiments under Schuyler, indicated in the 
rolls. These troops were engaged with the army in general in throwing up works around Boston and main 
taining the siege of the place. Some disatisfaction occurred among the men and many returned home 
just before the expiration of their term of service. Their excuses were those of men who had enlisted 
provisionally and as yet had not learned the true meaning of military discipline. Desertion they dis 
claimed. The trouble proved to be temporary, as the regiments, upon the enlistment of troops for 
the next year, were recruited to the average strength. 

The three regiments for the Northern Department were those of General Wooster and Colonels 
Hinman and Waterbury, with one company of Colonel Parsons regiment. They took part in the opera 
tions under Schuyler and Montgomery, looking to the secure possession of Lakes George and Champlain 
and the invasion of Canada. Much sickness prevailed among the men. The records show that these 
regiments at first declined to be mustered as Continental, the men preferring to remain during their 
term, which expired December 10, on the Colony establishment ; but the matter coming before the 
Legislature at its October session, it resolved that all the Connecticut troops "then employed against 
the ministerial troops in Canada, shall be suject to the rules, orders, regulations, and discipline of the 
Congress of the twelve United Colonies during the time of their enlistment." They thus became what 
they had been considered in the field Continental regiments. 

Bunker Hill and Quebec. In a note appended to General Putnam s, or the Third Regiment, some 
statements appear respecting the Connecticut detachment at Bunker Hill, and at the close of the record 
for 1775 (following Huntington s regiment) the record of Connecticut men in the Quebec Expedition is 
given. 

The list of Staff officers and rosters of the regiments for 1775, compiled from the records, State 
Library, Rev. War, Voh. IT and III, and other original sources, are as follows:

Jonathan Heart, of Southington, (afterwards an officer through the war,) is said to have been in one of the regi 
ments before Boston in 75. He may have been a volunteer in the 2 1 Co. of Spencer s Regt. as Capt. Scott 



of that Co. authorizes the Pay table Committee to deliver the pay for his men "to Jonathan Heart." 
A number of men entered as deserters about Dec. 1, afterwards explained, in petitions, that they had no inten 
tion of deserting, but believed that their term had expired on that date instead of the 10 lh . "The Assembly 
ordered them to be paid for full time. Some of these cases are on record, viz. : Serjt. Joseph Stocking, 
Privates Thos. Jeroms, Thos. Gilbert, Amos Rose, and Thos. Gould (not on the Co. rolls above), of the 
6 th Co. ; Amos Fuller, of the 8 th Co. ; and William Crane, of Wethersfield, of the 9 th Co. Respecting the 
latter, his mother, Lydia Crane, states in a petition that she had three sons in the service in 1775. The 
eldest (name not given) died in camp; the second (probably Joseph Crane, 9 h Co.) returned; and the third, 
the above William Crane, who had enlisted in Chester s Co. and fought at Bunker Hill, left his regiment 
about Nov. 30. supposing his time out, but being taking down with fever on the war, wandered in his 
delirium to Leicester, Mass., and died there.

1 The record does not show that Experience Storrs was made full Colonel after July when Gen. Putnam, under the new Continental plan, ceased to command the 
regiment. The promotion of Durkce from Major to Lieut. -Col. would imply that Storrs was also promoted.

NOTE ON BUNKER HILL. 

number of Connecticut troops present at this engagement was about four hundred. As far as letters and meagre records 
show they were detailed as follows : On the evening of June 16, 75, a body of one thousand men from the Massachusetts 
and Connecticut regiments around Cambridge, under the immediate command of Col. Prescott, was ordered to Charlestowu Neck to 
fortify Bunker s (Breed s) Hill. Of this number two hundred were from Conn, under the command of Capt. Knowltou, the detach 
ment being made up of details of one subaltern officer and about thirty men from companies in Putnam s and Spencer s regiments. 
Lt.-Col. Storrs, of Putnam s, states that he sent from his company, " Lieut. Dana, Serjt. Fuller, Corp. Webb, and 28 Privates." 
Capt. Chester, of Spencer s, states that thirty-one went from his company, probably under Lieut, Stephen Goodrich. Putnam s own 
company was represented by Lieut. Grosvenor and thirty men. 

Prescott s command, working all night, completed a redoubt which threatened the British shipping. Lord Howe determined 
to drive the "rebels" from it, and the battle of Bunker Hill followed, .Tune 17. During the progress of the action, Captain 
Knowlton and the Connecticut men, with others, were sent to the left where they posted themselves behind a stone wall and inflicted 
heavy loss upon the enemy. Reinforcements from the American camp arrived both before and during the battle. Among these 
were the whole or portions of at least three companies of Connecticut troops. Captain Chester reached the stone wall with the 
rest of his company, perhaps sixty men, and Captains Clark and Coit, of Parsons regiment, also arrived. These with the two 
hundred detailed the evening before would make about four hundred as Connecticut s representation at the battle. 

Among the Connecticut officers mentioned as present in the action were Gen. Putnam, in general command. Major Durkce, 
Captains Chester, Clark, Coit, Lieuts. Dana, Keyes, Hide, Webb, Grosveuor, Bingham (of Norwich), and Ensigns Hill and Bill (of 
Lebanon). A few of the men s names are also reported, namely : Roger Fox, William Checney, Asahel Lyon, Benjamin Rist, 
Samuel Ashbo, Gershom Smith, Matthew Cuminings, Daniel Memory killed ; Philip Johnston, Wilson Rowlandson, Lawrence 
Sullivan, William Robinson, Benjamin Ross prisoners; Gershom Clark, of Lebanon, wounded; James Law, of Lebanon right 
arm broken; John Arnold, Ebenezer Clark, Elijah Abbe, William Clark, Beriah Geer, Nathan Richardson, William Watrous.^Syl- 
vanus Snow, William Moore, John Wampee, and Timothy Bugbee lost their guns in the fight. As to losses, one account gives 
fourteen killed and thirty wounded among the Connecticut men. Dr. Philip Turner is mentioned as " attend* wounded after 
Charlestown Battle." Lawrence Sullivan, prisoner, was released Feb. 24, 76. William Crane, of Wethersfield, Chester s Co., was 
in the action. 

Lieut. -Col. Storrs makes the following entry in his diary (MSS.) June 17, the day of the battle: 

"At sunrise this morning a fire began from y" ships, but moderate. About 10 went down to y Hill to Genl. Putnam s Post, who 
has y command. Some shot whistled around us. Tarried there a spell and Returned to have my company in readiness to relieve them 




lars did not come off from Bunker s Hill but have taken possession of the Intrenchments and our People make a Stand on Winter Hill 
and we immediately went to entrenching. Flung up by morning an entrenchment about 1(10 feet square. Done principally by our Reg 



iment under Putnam s directions. Had but little sleep the night." 



FOURTH REGIMENT-COL HINMAN S-1775. 



[Raised on the first call for troops, April-May, 1775, and recruited mainly in Litchfield County. Upon the surprise of Ft Ticon- 
deroga, May 10, Gov. Trumbull ordered this regiment to march as soon as possible to secure that post and Crown Point against recapture 
A request to this effect was also made by the Continental Congress. The regiment reached Ticonderoga in June and Col Hinman 
assumed command until the arrival of Gen. Schuyler. It took part in the operations of the Northern Department until expiration of term 
of service Dec., 1775. Regiment suffered much from sickness, and many men were mustered out in Oct. -Nov., 1775.]

THE QUEBEC EXPEDITION, 1775. 



OFFICERS AND SOLDIERS DETACHED FKOM THE CONNECTICUT TKOOPS. 



[Upon the capture of Fort Ticonderoga in M:ty, 75, the project of invading Canada became popular both in Congress and the 
Army. Gen. Montgomery having been authorized to make the attempt by way of Lake Champlain, Washington organized an expedi 
tion to co-operate with him by way of the Kennebcc and the Maine woods. This force was composed of thirteen companies of volun 
teers detached from the several New England regiments around Boston and the Penn. and Va. rifle companies lately arrived in camp 
the total number of officers and men being 13(10. Connecticut s quota was one full Company, 100 strong. Col. Benedict Arnold was 
assigned to the command of the force with Lieut. Cols. Green, of K. I., and Enos, of Conn., and Maj s Bigelow of Mass, and Meigs 
of Conn., as the other field officers. The Connecticut Co. was commanded by Capt. Hanchett. Montgomery and Arnold joined forces 
before Quebec and atlempted its capture by assault, Dec. 31, 75, with the well known disastrous result.]

NOTES ON THE SERVICE, 1775. 

AKMS AND ACCOUTREMENTS. At the special April session of the Legislature, when the first regiments were called out, 
it was enacted that the enlisted men should be furnished with good fire-arms, belonging to the colony, if they were unable to 
furnish themselves; and if they found their own arms, to be paid 10s. for the use of such arms. And in case more arms should be 
required they were to be impressed from householders not enrolled; ten shillings were to be awarded to all who offered guns, bayo 
nets, and cartouch boxes to the soldiers. It was resolved at the same time that three thousand stand of arms be procured for the 
colony, "of the following dimensions, to wit: the length of the barrel three feet ten inches, the diameter of the bore from inside 
to inside three-quarters of an inch, the length of the blade of the bayonet fourteen inches, the length of the socket four inches and 
one-quarter; that the barrels be of suitable thickness, with iron ramrods and a spring in the lowest loop to secure the ramrods, 
a good substantial lock, and a good stock well mounted with brass and marked with the name or initial letters of the maker s name." 
Col. Records, Vol. XIV, p. 420. Officers wore swords, or "hangers" as then commonly called. 

Soldiers Rations. -At the May session, the ration for the troops was fixed as follows: Three-fourths of a pound of pork or 
one pound of beef, one pound of bread or flour, three pints of beer to each man per day beef to be fresh two days in a week ; 
also, a half-pint of rice or a pint of Indian meal ; six ounces of butter, and three pints of peas or beans each man per week. Sol 
diers on fatigue duty were to be allowed one gill of rum each per day, and at no other time. Milk, candles, soap, molasses, vinegar, 
coffee, chocolate, sugar, tobacco, and vegetables in season, were to be provided subject to the order of general and field officers. 
After the troops became Continental, the ration, as authorized by Congress, was not as liberal, either in quantity or variety, as the 
colony allowance. 

Pay of Officers and Soldiers. At the April session the following was established as the pay per calendar month for officers 
and enlisted men: 



Captain 6 

Lieutenant 4 

Ensign 3 

Adjutant, 5 10 



Quarter Master 3 

Chaplain 6 

Surgeon 7 10 

Surgeon s Mate, 4 



Serjeant 2 8 

Corporal, 2 4 

Fifer and Drummer 2 4 

Private, 2 



Major-General, 20 

Brig. -General, 17 

Colonel, 15 

Lieut-Colonel, 12 

Major, 10 

Uniforms and Camp Equipage. The troops for 1775 were generally without uniforms. They inarched in citizens clothes, 
with blankets and knapsacks. A few exceptions are noted, such as Captain Chester s Wethersfield Company, of the Second Regi 
ment, which was clothed "wholly in blue turned up with red," and Captain Arnold s company of Governor s Guards, New Haven, 
in the Lexington alarm. Individual officers provided themselves with uniforms, but their rank was distinguished by different col 
ored ribbons, which they were directed to wear. 

Camp equipage consisted of tents or "marques" for officers, tents for soldiers, and tin and brass kettles, iron pots, frying 
pans, wooden bowls, and quart cups for company cooking and "messes." Each company was allowed one cart or wagon. 

Regimental Standards. It was enacted by the Legislature that the eight regiments of 75 should be distinguished by flags of 
different colors, as follows: 1st Regt., yellow; 2d Regt., blue; 3d Regt., scarlet; 4th Regt., crimson ; 5th Regt., white; 6th Regt., 
azure; 7th Regt, blue(?); 8th Regt., orange. 



PRISONERS. 

Beyond the men of Captain Hanchctt s company, captured at the assault on Quebec, few Connecticut sol 
diers were taken prisoners in 75. Six or seven were captured at Bunker Hill, as noted. The following 
surrendered with Col. Ethan Allen near Montreal, Sept. 25, and were confined in jail at Halifax: 

Roger Moore, Salisbury; Lcvi Barn urn and Ebenezer Mack, Norfolk; John Gray, Samuel Lewis, Adonijah 
Muxum, David Goss [Goff?], Sharon; Itlmriel Flowers, Hartford; Charles Stewart, Stamford; Jona 
than Mahn, Goshen; William Drinkwater, New Milford; Zachuriah Brinsinade, Woodbury; John 
James Burque, Preston Denton, Barnabas Cone; Peter Noble (made his escape at Cape Fear, North 
Carolina). Levi Munson, of Wallingford, taken with the same party, was sent to England with 
others, but returned to Halifax, June 21, 76; exchanged later and re-ent. Cont. service in 77. Amos 
Green, of Branford, was captured in Northern Dcpt. Oct. 20, 75, carried to Quebec and then to Eng 
land, where he remained till Aug.. 76. Returning to Halifax he escaped, and in the course of two 
months reached his home. 

Asa Whitney, of Salisbury, was armorer in Northern Dept. 2 months and 20 days from about July 20, 75. 



Lieut. Charles Smith, of Hebron, belonging to Capt. Hart s Co. in Col. Sergeant s Mass. Regt. " absconded " 
in Aug. 75. 

Capt. Noah Phelps, of Simsbury, who figured in the Ticonderoga Enterprise, appears later as army "con 
tractor " in Northern Dept. 

Lieut. Luther Stoddard, of Canaan, in 4th Company of Hinman s Regt., was also Adjutant of the Regt. 



Mark Mezuzan, of Branford, is paid as Quarter Master in Northern Dept. He may have filled that position 
in Wooster s Regt. ; doubtless the same officer Qr. Mr. in Col. Moses Ilazen s Cont. Regt. in 77.

B. REGIMENTS FOR 1776. 



ORGANIZATION. The regiments called out in 1775, although adopted as Continental, consti- 
tuded a provisional force. Raised by their respective colonies to meet an emergency their ser 
vice was limited to short terms. Nearly all were to disband in December, when it was 
expected, as had usually been the case in the French and Indian war, that military operations would 
cease for the winter. As it was imperative, however, to continue to hem in the enemy at Boston and 
hold the ground gained in the Northern Department, as well as prepare generally for a determined 
struggle, Congress at an early date moved to organize a new force for 1770. On Sept. 20, 1775, Presi 
dent Hancock writing to Washington invited his attention to the following points : " The continuation 
of the army now under your command in the service of the Continent, after the terms of its enlistment 
shall have been completed ; the reducing of the several corps of Provincials, which at present compose 
your army, into one body of Continental Forces ; what number will be necessary for the winter cam 
paign ; what rations shall be allowed the men, and what further regulations may be necessary for the 
government of those Forces. Upon these heads the Congress wish to be favored with the result of your 
deliberations as soon as possible." On receipt of these instructions the Commander-in-Chief called a 
council of the General officers, Oct. 8th, to consider plans for " the continuance and new-modelling " of 
the army, when it was advised that a new force of about twenty thousand men be raised to maintain 
the position before Boston, and that it be enlisted for one year from Jan. 1, 1770. Congress furthermore 
appointed a Committee of three Dr. Franklin, Mr. Lynch, and Col. Harrison to repair to Headquar 
ters at Cambridge, and consult in the matter in person with Washington and delegates from the New 
England Colonies. This Conference met on Oct. 18th the Connecticut delegates being Deputy- 
Governor Griswold and Mr. Nathaniel Wales and after deliberating four days accepted the conclusions 
of the General officers. It was agreed that, exclusive of riflemen and artillery, twenty-six regiments 
consisting each of seven hundred and twenty-eight men and officers, divided into eight companies, 
should be raised under Continental directions, to serve until Jan. 1, 1777. Connecticut s quota remained 
the same as before five regiments. Her delegates expressed the opinion at the Conference that " eight 
thousand men may be raised in their Province to serve the next Campaign on the same terms as the 
present, viz. : forty shillings bounty." 

On Nov. 4th, Congress adopted the report of the Conference, and Washington took steps to organ 
ize the new force. He called upon and urged the soldiers already in the field for 75 to re-enlist for 
another year, and new lists of field and line officers were made out under whom they were to serve. The 
Connecticut regiments of 75 were " remodelled " on this plan. Gen. Putnam s was given to Benedict 
Arnold, Gen. Spencer s continued under Col. Wyllys, and Cols. Parsons, C. Webb, and Huntington 
remained in command of their own as before. In the arrangement of the twenty-six regiments for 70 
(afterwards increased to twenty-seven), Parsons was numbered the 10th Continental Foot, Hunting- 
ton s the 17th, C. Webb s the 19th, Arnold s the 20th, and Wyllys s the 22d. They were known as such 
for that year only. Many changes were made among the company officers by the promotion of deserv 
ing subalterns and non-commissioned officers, to the advantage of the commands. With few exceptions 
all had been in service in 75. In the absence or loss of many of the rolls for 70, it is uncertain how far 
the soldiers of 75 re-enlisted for 70, but references indicate that a considerable number returned, who, 
with recruits, filled the new regiments to a respectable strength before spring. The Connecticut Assem 
bly, at its December session, had resolved that those soldiers " who had or should enlist into the Conti 
nental army for the ensuing campaign, should be exempt from the poll tax on the list of 1770 ; and also 
that their bodies should be exempt from arrests for debts during their tour of service." 

(95) 



96 CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

On Jan. 1, 1770, when the re-organized army began its new term, Washington issued the follow 
ing order from Headquarters at Cambridge : 

"(Parole, The Congrest.) (Countersign, America.) 

This day giving Commencement to the new Army, which, in every point of view, is entirely Continental, the General flatters 

himself, that a laudable spirit of emulation will now take place, and pervade the whole of it His Excellency hopes, 

that the importance of the great cause we are engaged in, will be deeply impressed on every man s mind; and wishes it to be con 
sidered, that an army without order, regularity, and discipline, is no better than a commissioned mob. Let us therefore, when 
every thing dear and valuable to freemen is at stake, when our unnatural parent is threatening us with destruction from every 
quarter, endeavour, by all the skill and discipline in our power, to acquire that knowledge and conduct which is necessary in war. 
Our men are brave and good; men who, with pleasure it is observed, are addicted to fewer vices than are commonly found in 
armies. But, it is subordination and discipline (the life and soul of an army") which, next under Providence, is to make us formida 
ble to our enemies, honourable in ourselves, and respected in the world." 

In the Northern Department no similar reorganization for 70 was effected. The Conference at 
Cambridge decided that " so much depended upon events and particularly upon the success of the pres 
ent expedition against Canada (under Montgomery and Arnold) that no probable calculation " could be 
made as to the number of troops necessary in that quarter. The three Connecticut regiments Woos- 
ter s, Hinman s, and Waterbury s, which, for various causes, had been greatly reduced in numbers, 
returned home in December. As events developed in Canada, however, the " expedition being 
defeated Congress, late in 75 and early in 70, authorized the enlistment of two regiments from Con 
necticut to serve in that department for one year. They were commanded by Cols. Charles Burrall and 
Samuel Elmore. In May, 70, still another regiment was called for, under Col. Andrew Ward, which 
joined Washington in the summer. This completed Connecticut s quota of Continental troops for 76, 
the same number as in 75 eight regiments. 

Service. The five regiments in the army before Boston remained thereuntil the enemy evacu 
ated the place in March. In April, they marched under Washington to New York, the next field of 
operations, and assisted in fortifying the city and vicinity. Col. Ward s joined them in August. Four 
of them were on the Brooklyn side at the time of the Battle of Long Island, Aug. 27, 7(5, and three more 
or less engaged. Huntington s lost heavily in prisoners. Two or three were caught in the panic of the 
troops on abandoning New York, Sept. loth. All were with the army at White Plains, Oct. 28th, and 
one of them, Col. Webb s, closely engaged. Portions of three were at Trenton and Princeton. In the 
Northern Department, under Gen. Schuyler, Col. Bun-all s regiment reinforced the troops before Quebec 
and afterwards took post at Ticonderoga. Col. Elmore s was stationed at old Fort Stanwix on the 
Mohawk, and vicinity. 

Knowltorfs Rangers and Bigelow s Art. Co. These commands are noticed at the end of the regi 
ments for 1770. 

Reinforcements of State and Militia troops in 1776. These are noticed with rosters under their 
. proper heads after the Continentals. Three militia regiments were ordered to Boston in January. 
Two began fortifying New York in February-March, before the arrival of the Continental troops. In 
June-July, Gen. Wadsworth s brigade of seven regiments (six months men) arrived and performed con 
siderable service. In August-September, twelve militia regiments under Gen. Oliver Wolcott served 
several weeks, as well as nine more from the eastern counties of the State, under Gen. Saltonstall. A 
few "troops of horse" were also on the ground for brief terms. The militia, and the same proved true 
of those coming from other colonies, while temporarily swelling Washington s army, failed to add much 
to its efficiency the men being generally poorly armed and undisciplined. Later, during the war, 
their service was more effective ; on some occasions highly important. 

The following rosters for 70 are arranged from original records in the State Library, Hartford, 
Department of State and Pension Bureau, Washington, D. C., the Trumbull papers, Massachusetts His

NATHAN HALE. One of the first published notices of Hale appears in the following extract from the Boston Chronicle as reprinted in the London Rfmemlirancer 
in 1782. After noticing the consideration paid to Andrei the writer proceeds: 

" But while we pay the debt of humanity to our enemies, let us not forget what we owe to our friends. About four years ago, CAPT. HALE, an American officer, 
of a liberal education, younger than Andre, and equal to him in sense, fortitude, and every manly accomplishment, though without opportunities of being so highly 
polished, voluntarily went into the city of New York, with a view to serve bis invaded country. He performed his part there with great capacity and address, but 
was accidentally discovered. In this trying circumstance he exhibited all the firmness of Andre, without the aid of a single countenance around him that spoke either 
respect or compassion, and though every thing that was said or done to him was adopted to make him feel that he was consideied as a traitor and a rebel. Andre 
appeared great in not contesting the clear grounds upon which he was condemned, and in refusing to employ the absurd and frivolous pleas that Clinton would have 
put into his mouth. Hale, though not at all disconcerted, mnde no plea for himself, and firmly rejected the advantageous oilers made him by the enemy upon condi 
tion of his entering into their service. Andre earnestly wished the mode of his death might have been more like that of a soldier; but consoled himself by observing, 
that in either way it would be but a moment s pang. Hale, calm and collected, took no notice of either of those circumstances. Andre as he was going to die, 
with great presence of mind and the most engaging air, bowed to all around him, and returned the respect that had been and was still paid to him; and said : Gen 
tleman, you will bear witness that I die with the firmness becoming a soldier. Hale bad received no such respects, and had none to return; but just before he ex 
pired, said, aloud : I am so satisfied with the cause in which I have engaged, that my only regret is, that I have not more lives than one to oiler in its service. "

OFFICERS PRISONERS. 

Capt. Peter Perritt, of Milford, in Col. Chas. Webb s Regt. 76, who had been, detached " on command " to serve 
with the garrison at Fort Washington, New York Island, was taken prisoner at its surrender, Nov. 16, 76. 
Exchanged Sept. 18, 78. He had previously been appointed a Captain in the new army for 77, and upon his 
exchange presented himself for service, but no vacancy then existing he was regarded as a supernumerary and 
received pay and bounty as such. On June 21, 79, he was appointed Captain in a State Regt., to serve one 
year. He commanded a company of "Rangers" in the vicinity of Boston after the Lexington alarm. See 
p. 28. 

Lieut. Joseph Hale (or Hall) is reported among the Connecticut officers taken prisoners at Ft. Washington, Nov. 
10, 76, and exchanged during the war. Captain Nathan Ilale had a brother Joseph Hale who was a Lieut, 
in Col. Andrew Ward s Regt. He may have been with the garrison in the fort and captured. 



KNOWLTON S RANGERS/ 3 1776. 



A FTER the American defeat on Long Island, Aug. 27, 76, a small body of select troops was organized for special service along 
* ^ the lines and placed under the command of Lieut. -Col. Thomas Knowlton of Durkee s Conn. Kcgt. 20th Continental. Col. 
Knowlton, a veteran of the French and Indian war, had distinguished himself at Bunker Hill and in one or two subsequent exploits 
during the siege of Boston, and was peculiarly fitted to lead a partisan corps. The detachment in question, known as Knowlton s 
" Rangers," was composed of officers and men chosen from different regiments, to which they were to return when no longer needed. 
Knowlton appears to have selected officers whom he knew, which accounts for the large proportion from Connecticut; the men also 
were largely from the same state. The command was small, not over one hundred and thirty or forty. Its first service gave it no 
little reputation in the army. After the retreat from New York, Sept. 15, 76 the troops in general being more or less depressed 
Washington ordered Knowlton to move out early on the 16th from Harlem Heights and ascertain the position of the enemy. 
Knowlton marched over Bloomingdale Heights, and found the enemy s outposts somewhere along the line of 110th St. on the main 
road, now Broadway. A skirmish occurred and Knowlton fell back to the American lines, then stretching along 125th St. from 
vicinity of 8th Avenue west to the Hudson. The British Light Infantry followed him. Washington thereupon directed Knowlton 
to attack again, turning their right, while other troops attacked them in front and left. A successful engagement followed, the 
enemy being driven back over the Bloomingdale grounds with loss. In the affair, Knowlton was mortally wounded, and died during 
the action, greatly regretted. In General Orders of Sept. 17, Washington referred to him as " the gallant and brave Col. Knowlton 
who would have been an honour to any country." 

Knowlton s Senior Captain Stephen Brown, of Woodstock succeeded to the command of the "Rangers," but in a few 
days returned to his regiment Durkee s. The other captains, so far as the records indicate, were Thomas Grosvenor, of Pomfret, 
and Nathan Hale, of Coventry. Grosvenor seems to have retired with Brown, and Hale, the "Martyr Spy," was then absent 
within the enemy s lines. As the next commander of the "Rangers," Washington appointed, Oct. 1, 76, Maj. Andrew Colburn, of 
Nixon s Mass. Regt. He was wounded before the end of the month and retired. The command devolved thereafter upon Lieut., 
afterwards Captain, Lemuel Holmes, of Sargeant s Mass. Regt. Upon the withdrawal of the army to White Plains and subsequently 
through New Jersey, it was proposed either to disband the " Rangers " or have them accompany the main force; but Col. Robert 
Magaw, of Pennsylvania, then commanding at Fort Washington, on New York Island below King s Bridge, urgently requested their 
continuance with him as being his main dependence for the security of his outposts. They accordingly remained on the Harlem 
lines until Nov. 16, 1776, when Fort Washington and the entire garrison were captured by the enemy. 

The "Rangers" thus disappear as prisoners. Oliver Burnham, one of the detachment afterwards Judge Burnham, of 
Conn. writing after the war, says: "We remained until the sixteenth of November in this situation (" near Harlem ") when we 
were warmly engaged on all sides. We were about two miles below the fort and well sustained the attack until the enemy made 
good their landing across Harlem River, when we had hard righting to reach the fort. Just as we had reached the gate, the flag went 
out and surrendered the fort and ourselves prisoners of war." 

It is worth while to note that the first three commanders of this corps fell in action during the war Col. Knowlton at 
Harlem Heights; Capt. Brown at Ft. Mifflin, Penn., Nov. 16, 77; Maj. Colburn, as Lieut.-Col., at Saratoga, Sept. 19, 77. Capt. 
Holmes, the last in command, remained a prisoner two years. 

The following roll of the "Rangers" is compiled from printed and Mss. records. The list of non-commissioned officers and 
privates is arranged from the papers of Capt. Lemuel Holmes, now in the Pension Bureau, Washington, and includes only the 
names of those who were captured with him at Ft. Washington. It doubtless represents the greater part of the original detachment.

BIGELOWS ARTILLERY COMPANY, 1776. 



[The first artillery company raised in Connecticut during the Revolution was an independent organization commanded by Capt. 
John Bigelow, of Hartford. It was recruited early in 1776 and marched to the Northern Department wliere it appears to have been 
accepted as a Continental Co. Stationed during the summer and fall of 76, at Ticonderoga and vicinity. In July Capt. Bigelow was 
sent by direction of Congress with a special Hag of truce to Burgoyne in Canada. The original roll of the Co. not on file. The

C. REGIMENTS. "CONNECTICUT LINE. 

FORMATION OF 1777-1781. 




-OLLOWING the organizations of 75 and 70 came the most important of all known in 
general as the "Continental Line," raised in 1777 and continuing with modifications to 
the close of the war. It passed, so far as the Connecticut troops were concerned, through 

four formations, the first of which is noticed under the present heading, C, covering the years 1777 

to 17S1. 

ORGANIZATION. 

Regiment* of the "Connecticut Line. --The experiences of the first two years of the war, es 
pecially the failure in Canada and the defeats in the campaign around New York in 70, had demon 
strated that the contest could not he successfully carried on with troops enlisted for short terms. 
The need of a permanent, disciplined army to cope with the British "regulars" was recognized as 
urgent. Congress, accordingly, by resolutions of Sept. Kith, 20th, and Oct. 8th, 1770, provided for 
such a body. The "establishment" of the current year would disband on Dec. 31, leaving the 
country practically at the mercy of the enemy should they be disposed to push a vigorous winter 
campaign. To take the place of this out-going force it was enacted that eighty-eight infantry regi 
ments be raised for continuous service to the end of the war unless otherwise ordered. They were 
proportioned among the States according to their population. Thus, Massachusetts and Virginia 
were to furnish each fifteen regiments, Pennsylvania twelve, New York four, Maryland and Con 
necticut each eight, and the rest in like ratio. As a body they were to form a grand "Continental 
Line," and would, so far, resemble the "Regiments of the Line" in the British establishment. They 
differed from the latter, however, in this respect, that instead of being numbered consecutively in 
the main line the regiments of each State formed a sub-division by themselves and were numbered 
from the "First" to the "Fifth," or the "Eighth" or the "Fifteenth," and so on, as the case 
might be. Each State quota thus became a "Line" in itself, which was designated by its State 
name. Hence, the " Massachusetts Line," the " South Carolina Line," the "Connecticut Line," &c. , 
each being a distinct body, commanded by officers from its own State, and cared for by its own 
State, as well as by Congress. Inspired by a common cause, and welded in homogeneous form un 
der the leadership of Washington, it was these State "Lines," facing the enemy as a single "Con 
tinental Line," that were to bear the burden of the war for the next six years and bring it to a 
successful close. 

The organization of this new army, as such, was to date from Jan. 1, 1777. The regiments 
were to consist of eight companies. Soldiers could enlist for one of two terms of service either 
"for three years" or "during the war." The particular terms under which the recruiting was to be 
conducted were published as follows in the Connecticut papers of the day : 

" RECRUITING INSTRUCTIONS 
For 



You arc immediately to enlist into the service of the United States of America, all able-bodied men, who are willing to enter 
into the service, on the following terms, viz. : 

First, You are not to enlist any but Freemen, able of body and under the age of fifty, carefully avoiding all persons laboring 
under lameness or other defects of body prejudicial to the service; if any such or boys are brought in, the officer inlisting them will 
be chargeable for the expence they may be to the public. 

(125) 



126 CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

Secondly, You are not to enlist any deserters from the army of the king of Great Britain, or persons of a disaffected or sus 
picious character, the American service having suffered greatly by the desertion of such persons. 

Thirdly, You are to enlist to serve three years, or during the continuance of the present war between Great Britain and the 
American States, unless sooner discharged by proper authority. 

Fourthly, The men, by you enlisted, are to be subject to the rules and articles for the government of the army, published by 
the Congress the 20th of September, 1776, and are to sign those articles. 

As an encouragement to such persons as shall enlist into the above service, you are authorized to engage, besides the pay and 
provisions now allowed, 

First, That every soldier shall upon being approved by a Major General, a Brigadier General, or Colonel Commandant of a 
Brigade, and some Surgeon, be entitled to a Bounty of Twenty Dollars and a suit of clothes, which suit of clothes shall be given 
annually. 

Secondly, He shall also be entitled to One Hundred Acres of Land at the expiration of his term of enlistment, and in case of 
his death, in the service, his representatives shall be entitled thereto. 

When any person is inlisted you are as soon as convenient, to take him to some person duly authorized by the above articles, 
to administer the oath therein prescribed. 

To encourage the brave and spirited to enter into the service, the General promises them all the plunder they shall take from 
the enemy, to be equally divided among the officers and men, according to their pay. 

Given at Head Quarters, 17th day of Dec., 1776. 

Jiy His Excellency General WASHINGTON." 

The Legislature of Connecticut added some further inducements, promising to increase the 
soldier s pay and provide the sick and wounded with "all necessaries for their comfort and relief. 

The officers for this army were selected with care. This was expressly required hy the reso 
lutions of Congress. As these officers were to be nominated by their respective State authorities 
and then commissioned by Congress, several of the Legislatures sent committees to Washington s 
army of 70, before it disbanded, to confer with the General officers and others as to proper ap 
pointments. This was done by Connecticut with the result that, with a very few exceptions, no 
officers were appointed for the eight regiments of the State "Line" who had not seen previous ser 
vice in 75 or 70. They were largely taken from the Continental regiments of 70 and from Wads- 
worth s Brigade of State troops which served for six months with those regiments. ,As to the 
enlisted men the incompleteness of the rolls of the eight regiments for 70 prevents any comparison 
which might show what proportion continued in the new regiments. But it is known that a large 
number re-enlisted. 

The following notice, published by John Lawrence, Esq., the State Treasurer, indicates the 
pressure upon the State funds at this time : 

" The Treasurer of the State of Connecticut hereby notifies all constables, and collectors of the Taxes due to this State, that 
he expects they respectively pay off their Arrearages; otherwise he shall be obliged to issue out his Warrants indiscriminately, 

against those who are delinquent The present Call for Money is so great, that notwithstanding some Taxes which are 

granted are not payable till May next; yet the Treasurer earnestly desires every Friend to this State to exert himself, and readily 
discharge said Kates, that he may be able to satisfy the generous Soldiers who have been in Defence of their Country, and likewise 
payoff the Battalions now raising for the same noble Purpose. Money is the Sinews of War and to have a full Supply at this 
Juncture, is of the last Importance. Without Money it is impossible for us to raise a new Army, the absolute Necessity of which 
must be known to all. It is hoped that every one will so generously pay his Rates, and the Constables so speedily collect and settle 
them, that for the Future not a Single Order may be refused at this Office. 

Treasury Office, January 27, 1777." 

Additional Troops. Congress, furthermore, called upon the States to recruit soldiers for the 
different arms, Cavalry, Artillery, &c., and also provided for the enlistment of what were known as 
the "additional" infantry regiments of this formation. Sixteen of these were authorized, but only 
thirteen were organized. Eecruited at large, they came more or less under Washington s immediate 
supervision, and their field officers were in the main appointed by himself. Of these regiments Con 
necticut raised the one commanded by Washington s late aid-de-camp, Col. Samuel B. Webb, and 
about half of the one commanded by Col. Sherburne of Rhode Island, of which Return Jonathan 
Meigs was the first appointed Lieut. -Colonel. The State also contributed several companies, as ap 
pears by the rosters, to Col. Moses Hazeu s regiment, sometimes called the "Canadian," recruited 
"at large," but not one of the sixteen mentioned above, and to Col. Seth Warner s regiment which 
was credited to the " Hampshire Grants." In addition companies were raised in the State for Col. 



REGIMENTS, "CONNECTICUT LINE," 1777-1781. 127 

Jeduthan Baldwin s Regiment of "Artificers" and part of a company for Col. Flower s Artillery 
"Artificers." A majority of the men in the small but valuable c.orps of " Sappers and Miners " were 
from Connecticut, but they appear to have been detached from the regiments of the " Line." 

Of the four Continental regiments of Cavalry or " Light Dragoons " raised at this time, the 
Second or Sheldon s was credited to Connecticut, though a few of the officers and men belonged to 
other States. Of the four Continental regiments of Artillery called for, the Second or Lamb s was 
raised largely in the State of New York. Connecticut s contribution to it consisted of the Lieut. - 
Colonel, Eleazer Oswald (see pp. 31, 91, n.), and four companies numbering in the aggregate one 
hundred and seventy men, or about one-quarter of the regimental strength. One company of Crane s 
First Artillery, mainly from Massachusetts, was commanded by Capt. Buckland of Hartford, and 
contained some of the men who originally belonged to Bigelow s Artillery Company of 7G. 

Inclusive of the several detachments named Connecticut s contribution to the " Continental 
Line " of 77- 81 consisted of about ten and a half regiments of infantry, one regiment of cavalry, 
and five companies of artillery. 

RECORD FOR 1777. 

The First Camp*. Gen. Putnam being in New Jersey during the winter and spring of 77. 
(after Trenton and Princeton), Gen. Wooster guarding the western end of the State, and Gens. 
Spencer and Arnold in Rhode Island, the business of organizing the "Connecticut Line" and push 
ing on the enlistments fell mainly to Gen. Parsons. By the 1st of April the recruiting had well 
progressed, and the men were ordered to assemble at given points and prepare to take the field. 
The several regiments they formed were commanded as follows during the next four years, the 
names of the Colonels being given as they succeeded each other by promotion :

In the fall of 80 Col. Samuel B. Webb s regiment was annexed to the "Connecticut Line" as 
the !)th Regt. The 1st Regt. during the greater part of 77 and 78 was known as Prentice s, that 
officer being its Lieut. -Colonel in command before Col. Starr took charge. The 8th Regt. also was 
known by the name of its Lieut. -Colonel, Mead, who commanded during the spring and summer of 78. 

On April U, 77, Gen. Parsons, in published orders, directed Huiitmgton s and Durkee s regi 
ments to rendezvous at Norwich, Wyllys s at Hartford, Douglas s at New Haven, Swift s at New 
Milford, Chas. Webb s, Bradley s, and Chandler s at Danbury, S. B. Webb s at Wethersfield, and 
Lieut. -Col. Meigs, with the half of Sherburne s regiment under his command, at Middletown. From 
these points the troops were ordered to march to Peekskill, N. Y., as soon as possible. On account 
of its central location on the Hudson, Peekskill had been designated as the encampment for nearly 
all the New England and New York troops then taking the field, and by the middle of July sev 
eral brigades had assembled there. In the early part of the season Maj.-Gen. McDougall com 
manded at that point, but was relieved about July 1st by Maj.-Gen. Putnam. Nearly all the Con 
necticut infantry mentioned above, together with a few companies of Dragoons under Lieut. -Col. 
Blagden and of artillery under Lieut. -Col. Oswald reported at Peekskill during the summer. The 
regiments were assigned to brigades, but many changes were made, and it was not until a year 
later that the permanent organization of the "Connecticut Line" into one division of two brigades 
under Gens. Parsons and Huntington respectively, was effected. 



128 CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

Danhury Raid and Say Harbor Expedition. While the regiments were thus organizing and 
going into camp, the enemy under Tryon attempted their expedition against Danbury, April 25-28, 
77. Among the Continental officers present who led troops against them were Geii. Wooster, mor 
tally wounded, Gen. Arnold, Col. Lamb, Col. Huntington, Col. Bradley, and others. The troops on 
the ground were mainly militia, but casualties are reported in Wyllys s and Bradley s Continentals. 
The regiments of the "Line" appear not to have been available just at that time a fact of which 
Tryon was doubtless aware. Some were at Peekskill and others scattered at points of rendezvous 
unarmed. The record of the militia under Gen. Silliman and others appears under its proper head. 

Tryon s incursion was offset three weeks later by a dash made by Lieut. -Col. Meigs at the 
enemy s stores at Sag Harbor, L. I. Gen. Parsons having authorized and encouraged the expedition, 
Meigs selected one hundred and seventy men from the rendezvous at New Haven, and leaving 
Guilford on May 23d in thirteen whale boats, struck across the Sound, marched rapidly to Sag 
Harbor, burned twelve vessels and a large quantity of hay, took ninety prisoners, and returned 
without the loss of a man. Congress voted Col. Meigs a sword for his successful exploit. The Col 
onel as well as Gen. Parsons soon after reported in the field at Peekskill. 

Brandywine and Germantoum. The campaign of 77 was inaugurated by the enemy. Bur- 
goyne approaching from the North and Howe aiming at Philadelphia called for a cautious distribu 
tion of the American forces. As soon as the British plans were clearly developed the Peekskill 
camp was demided of its troops. The New York and Massachusetts regiments were sent to Schuyler 
and Gates, and six of the nine Connecticut regiments with the two from Rhode Island were ordered 
at different times to Washington s main army in Pennsylvania. The Connecticut "Line" remained 
intact at Peekskill. engaging occasionally in .expeditions towards King s Bridge, until after the 
American defeat at Brandywine, Sept. 11, 77, when Washington directed Putnam to send him rein 
forcements. Putnam at once dispatched Durkee s, Bradley s, Swift s, and Chandler s regiments, 
under Gen. McDougall, who duly reported to Washington. His command arrived in time to partici 
pate in the battle of German town, Oct. 4. It was assigned to Greene s Division on the left flank of 
the entire line, and in action encountered the enemy s Light Infantry. The course of the battle at 
this point appears to have been the same as at all points throughout the line. In the initial attack 
Washington gained ground, but the murky atmosphere and the unfortunate diversion at the Chew 
House compelled a retreat. One of the Connecticut officers, probably Chandler, reported the result 
to Gov. Trumbull very briefly thus : 

"The retreat in general was safe and good. The army is now returned to the old encampment, our Brigade being on one of 
the Hanks. As to the killed and wounded Returns are now making up; it will not exceed 500. For my Regt. 22 killed, &c., Dur- 
key s fc Swift s much short, Bradley s something more." [ Trumbull Papers.] 

Gens. Varnum and Huntington were also ordered to Washington s army, but did not arrive 
until after the battle: They brought the Rhode Island regiments and the 1st Conn., then known as 
Prentice s. On the Ifith of October, in rearranging the troops, Washington assigned McDougall to 
the command of the new division composed of Varnum s and Huntington s brigades, as follows :

Respecting the battle of Brandywine, preceding Germantown no Eastern troops were at that 
time with Washington as separate corps. Major Tallmadge, with a detachment of the 2d Dragoons, 
had been moving with the army, but was not actively engaged on that occasion. The Connecticut 
company in Col. Moses Hazen s Regt. took part in the action, and its Captain, Jeremiah Parmelee, 
of New Haven, received a wound from the effects of which he died in the following spring. He 
had served in the Northern Department from the opening of the war. Several if not all the 
State s companies in Baldwin s corps of Artificers were also on the field. 



REGIMENTS, " CONNECTICUT LINE," 1777-1781. 129 

Fort Mifflin, Mud Island, Perm. After Germantown, Washington made an effort to command 
the Delaware below Philadelphia the city being occupied by the enemy -and for a time succeeded. 
It furnished the occasion for a brave and spirited defence of the two American forts on opposite 
sides of the river. On the left bank Col. Greene, of Varnum s Brigade, repulsed the determined 
attack of Donop on Ft. Mercer. At Ft. Mifflin, Mud Island, on the right bank, Col. Smith, of Mary 
land, tenaciously held his ground against the overwhelming fire from the enemy s shipping. Ex 
haustion and a wound, however, compelled him to retire, and it also became necessary to relieve 
the greater part of the devoted garrison. It fell to Varnum s Brigade to furnish the relief, which 
consisted of detachments from Durkee s and Chandler s companies, under Lieut. -Col. Giles Russell of 
the latter regiment. This change took place on the 12th of November, 77. Russell, a veteran of four 
campaigns in the French and Indian war, in one of which he was wounded, and whom Varnum 
reports as a sensible and excellent officer, was "totally destitute of health," and soon requested to 
be relieved. Maj. Thayer, of Rhode Island, succeeded him as volunteer, and the garrison under his 
direction continued its remarkable defence under a still closer and more effective fire from the 
British ships. On the 10th, further resistance being out of the question, the ruined fort was aban 
doned. The Connecticut detachment, which bore the brunt of the bombardment, suffered seriously. 
"We have lost some gallant officers and men," wrote Gen. Huntington to Governor Trumbull, and 
he specially mentioned Capt. Stephen Brown, one of Knowlton s favorite officers in the "Rangers" 
of the previous year. This officer was killed by a round shot from one of the enemy s ships, and 
Capt. Nathan Stoddard, of Chandler s, suffered the same fate in a similar way. 
Washington soon after withdrew towards Valley Forge. 

Putnam on the Hudson. The Burgoyne Campaign. So many regiments had been ordered 
from the Peekskill camp to report to Gates on the upper Hudson or to Washington in Pennsyl 
vania, that on Oct. 1, 77, Gen. Putnam had but one Continental brigade at his command. This 
was Parsons , which consisted of the three remaining regiments of the Connecticut "Line," namely, 
Wyllys s, Chas. Webb s, and Meigs , together with Samuel B. Webb s and Sherburne s "additional." 
A considerable body of militia was on its way from Connecticut to reinforce him. 

The enemy under Sir Henry Clinton at New York moved up the Hudson in October to 
attempt the relief of Burgoyne. With his superior force and under cover of boats and shipping 
Clinton was able to deceive Putnam as to his line of advance whether on the east or west side of 
the river and by a rapid move attacked and captured Forts Clinton and Montgomery. Subse 
quently Kingston was burned. Putnam fell back, marching up the Hudson, and was prepared to 
interpose himself between Clinton and Gates, reinforcing the latter in case the former persisted in 
his original design. Clinton, however, returned to New York, and Putnam resumed his position at 
Peekskill. In the spring of 78 a Court of Inquiry, consisting of Gens. McDougall and Huntington 
and Col. Wigglesworth, of Mass., investigated the causes of the loss of the two forts mentioned 
above, and exonerated Gen. Putnam. 

In the movements against Burgoyne no Continental infantry from Connecticut took part, her 
nine regiments having been engaged under Washington and Putnam. One company of Sheldon s 
Dragoons, under Capt. Thomas Y. Seymour, had been detached to Gen. Gates force ; otherwise 
Connecticut was represented on that field by militia, as noticed under that head. Two of the 
militia regiments Cook s and Latmer s did excellent service during the campaign. 

Whitemarsh, Penn. After Burgoyne s surrender Washington called for more troops from 
the northern camps. From Parsons Connecticut Brigade Col. Chas. Webb s regiment was detached. 
It set out Nov. 1-1, 77, and on Dec. 8 engaged in a brisk action with enemy at Whitemarsh, Penn., 
in which two young Lieutenants and a number of men were killed and wounded. Not properly 
supported by the militia the few Continental troops were compelled to fall back, leaving the ground 
in the enemy s hands.

RECORD FOR 1778. 

Winter at Volley Forae. 7?- ?.s . Col. Chas. Webb s Regt. appears to have been attached to 
Huntington s brigade, so that McDougall s Division as it went into quarters at Valley Forge 
consisted of the two Rhode Island regiments and the six regiments of the Connecticut "Line" 
commanded by Cols. Durkee, Bradley, Swift, Chandler, C. Webb, and the 1st Regt. under Lieut. -Col. 
Prentice. They remained with the main army through that memorable winter. The towns of the 
State sent some contributions of clothes, but the suffering of the soldiers was for a time extreme. 
As spring opened they recovered their spirits and fell to drilling under Steuben s new tactics. 

Battle of Moninontli. From Valley Forge Washington moved out in June 78 to follow the 
enemy in their withdrawal from Philadelphia to New York. Overtaking them near Monmouth Court 
House, N. J., June 28, he forced and won the well-known battle of that name. As a reminiscence 
of the victory there is preserved in MSS. the following order issued by Gen. Huntington to his 
own regiments on the morning of the engagement: 

"Brigade Orders, June 28, above English Town where the Troops were formed to march to Freehold. 

Officers & N. Com. offi will speak to their men and make themselves known to their respective Commands. The men 
to observe their file Leaders, & right and left hand men that they may know their places. 

(apt. Converse is to act, on the present occasion as assistant Brigade Major, & is to be obeyed accordingly. 

The officers will as far as consistent with their particular commands, have regard to the commands of Superior officers 
& supply vacancies as may be needful. 

Gen. Huntington has the fullest confidence in the Bravery and abilities of his officers and Men doubts not they will 
preserve a cool & determined spirit, and confiding in the Justice of .their cause, and in the God of Heaven, they will gain 
honor to themselves and their Country." [ Order Boole N. } . Hist. Soc.] 

Huntington s Brigade appears to have formed part of the main line after Lee s repulse, but 
the other brigade of the Division, Varnum s. which in Gen. Varnum s absence in R. I. was 
commanded by Col. Durkee, was pushed to the front. It engaged the enemy and in addition to 
losses in action became greatly exhausted through much marching and counter marching under 
Lee s orders. The heat of the day was excessive. Durkee was wounded in the hand and later in 
the day Lieut. -Col. Russell, of the 8th Regt., commanded the Brigade. 

Catiij) at White Plain*. From Monmouth Washington moved to White Plains, N. Y., 
and encamped near Chatterton Hill and the old battle ground of 70. There he remained until late 
in the fall when the troops went into winter quarters at different points. At White Plains Wash 
ington was joined by all the Continental regiments stationed at West Point and along the Hudson 
under Putnam and Gates, and could thus present a powerful front. It was the largest force of 
regular troops brought together in a single encampment during the war a veritable Continental 
Line" composed of the greater part of the various "Lines" from New Hampshire to North Carolina, 
that of New Jersey excepted which was then stationed in its own State. The Rhode Island "Line" 
with Glover s Mass, and H. B. Webb s and the "additional" regiments were soon ordered to Rhode 
Island. With these omissions the White Plains army was arranged in the following

It was at this camp, White Plains, that the two Connecticut brigades were organized as they 
subsequently stood, until Jan. 1, 1781. The assignment of the regiments was as follows:

Battle of Rhode Island. Major-Generals Greene, Sullivan, and Lafayette (Heath being then at 
Boston and Arnold commanding at Philadelphia) had been ordered with the troops to Rhode Island, 
and on Aug. 29, 78, fought a well-sustained battle with the enemy. Col. S. B. Webb s Connecticut 
Regt., under Lieut. -Col. Livingston and Maj. Huntington, and Sherburne s Regt., were among the 
commands immediately engaged. 

Arrangement of Officers at White Plain it, N. Y., 78. Many disputes as to precedence in rank 
having arisen since the formation of the " Continental Line," Congress appointed a committee con 
sisting of Messrs. Roger Sherman, Read, and Bannister, to repair to army headquarters and adjust 
the various claims. Orders were issued to all officers concerned to present their cases, those from 
Connecticut being notified as follows : 

"White Plains, Aug. 29, 78. 

Cols. Wyllys, Bradley, Swift, and Meigs are app< to settle the relative Ranks of the Lt.-Cols., Majors & Captains in the 
Conn. Line. They are to meet at Col. Wyllys s marque at 3 o clock this afternoon, and make their report to the committee of 
arrangements at lid. Qrs." 

This was known as the "Arrangement of Nov. 15, 78" the various claims not being finally 
settled until that date. New commissions were issued under this arrangement, and in the case of 
the Connecticut Line " the lists of the several regiments as prepared for Roger Sherman have been 
followed in the rosters of the first formation, 77- 81. No change was made in the regiments. 

Winter Quarters at Redding. Breaking up the grand camp at White Plains Washington 
distributed the troops into winter quarters. The greater part he stationed under his immediate com 
mand at Middlebrook, N. J. West Point was garrisoned by Massachusetts men. The Connecticut 
Division with the New Hampshire Brigade and Hazen s regiment took post at Redding. Under 
orders of Oct. 22, 78, the division was to leave White Plains the next morning at 7 o clock under 
the Command of Maj. -Gen. McDougall. Nixon s Mass, brigade marched with it, but kept on to 
Hartford. On Oct. 25, the division reached New Milford and was directed to go into camp " in the 
woods of Benjamin Buckingham." It was called Camp Second Hill," and there the troops 
remained until Nov. ID, when they marched to Redding. About Dec. 1 Gen. Putnam assumed com 
mand (Gen. McDougall going to Peekskill), and the division settled into log huts for the winter. 

RECORD FOR 1779. 

Redding. Putnam at Horseneck. Mutiny. From the camp at Redding detachments were 
occasionally sent out to watch the enemy, and posts were kept up on the Sound. On Dec. 5, 78, 
Gen. Parsons is reported with a party at Horseneck and in Feb. 70 he was there again looking 
after the guards. In the latter part of the month Putnam was at the same place endeavoring to 
repel a superior force of the enemy under Tryon, and at this time occurred his famous ride down 
the stone steps at Horseneck. An authoritative account of this and other incidents of camp life at 
Redding appears in Humphreys "Life of Putnam" -Humphreys being Putnam s Aid-de-camp at 
the time. 

On the 30th of Dec. 78, the men of Gen. Huntington s Brigade assembled under arms, deter 
mined to march to Hartford and demand of the Legislature redress of grievances. Gen. Putnam 



132 CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

immediately rode down to their quarters and demanded by whose orders they were paraded. They 
replied that they had been suffering from want of blankets and clothes, that their pay was nothing, 
and that all engagements with them should be made good. Putnam addressed them kindly and 
firmly and they dispersed to their huts, remaining quiet through the season. Putnam s report of 
the affair, date Jan. 79, appears in the MSS. "Trumbull Papers." 

//( the Highlands. In May 70, the Connecticut Division was ordered into the field on the 
Hudson, and early in June it encamped in the Highlands opposite West Point. Three strong works 
had been begun on high ground there known as the "North," "Middle," and "South" Redoubts 
on which the troops continued work. Maj.-Gen. Heath, of Massachusetts, was assigned to the Con 
tinental force on the east side of the river consisting of the Conn. "Line" and a division of Mass, 
troops under Gen. Robert Howe. Gen. Putnam had been assigned to the command of the right 
wing of the army, on the west side of the river, headquarters at Smith s Clove. It included 
the Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania Divisions. Before leaving quarters at Redding he issued 
the following order, May 27, 79: 

"Maj. General Putnam being about to take command of one of the Wings of the Grand Army, before lie leaves the 
Troops who have served under him the winter past, thinks it his Duty to Signify to them his entire approbation of their Reg 
ular and Soldier like Conduct, and wishes them (wherever they may happen to be out) a Successful and Glorious Campaign." 

Tnjoii x Inraxion of Connecticut. On July 5, 79, Tryon began his depredations by attacking 
and "invading" New Haven and burning and pillaging the towns of Fail-field, Norwalk, and Green 
wich. The defence of these places was left to the militia. When word, however, reached Washing 
ton he immediately ordered the Connecticut Division to march towards the coast with all possible 
speed and assist in repelling the enemy should they continue their ravages. Gen. Heath s orders 

on the occasion were as follows: 

"AFTER DIVISION ORDERS, 

MANDEVILLE S, July 10, 79. 

Genl. Parsons & Huntingtons Brigades are to be ready to march to morrow morning. If the heavy baggage is now in 
places of safety it is to be left, otherwise it is to be sent away to some place of security. The men are to draw two Days 
provision which they are to carry with them. The Oommissarys will take on as much Bread, salt meat it Hour as they have 
Teams to transport. The Brigade tj. M". will arrange the Waggons agreeable to the Regulations ik the Waggon Masters will see 
that they observe their order. (Jen 1 Parsons Brigade to strike, pack & load their tents as early as possible it move on ifc 
join Gen 1 Huntington s who are to remain at their present post ready to march when the junction is formed. The guards & 
Light Infantry to join their Respective Brigades at Reveille beating. The troops to inarch as little encumbered as possible." 

The Division marched as directed; but Tryon having sailed off, it missed an opportunity of de 
fending its own State. Detachments from Butler s and Wyllys s regiments in Parsons leading Brigade 
skirmished with the enemy near Norwalk. 

Storm iny of titoni/ Point. Returning to its position on the Hudson, the Division was called upon 
for its proportion of companies for a Light Infantry Corps to be commanded by Gen. Anthony Wayne. 
This body was composed of four regiments of about four hundred officers and men each, all of whom 
were selected for special service. The Connecticut Division contributed one full regiment under Col. 
Return Jonathan Meigs, the Mass. Division another, and the right wing of the army, including the Penn 
sylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina troops, completed the other half of the Corps. On the 
night of July 15, 79, Wayne assaulted and carried Stony Point (which the enemy had occupied in May) 
with such skill, dash, and completeness as to win praises even from the enemy themselves. The British 
lost seven hundred prisoners, with many killed and wounded, while the casualties in Wayne s Corps 
were comparatively small. For the organization of Meigs regiment and further details see roster 
toward the end of present formation of 1777-1781. 

Camp "Robinson s Farm."-- After demolishing the works, Wayne s Corps abandoned Stony 
Point, and not long after the enemy re-occupied the position. The American army remained as 
before in the vicinity of West Point. On the east side in Heath s wing the Connecticut Division 
was stationed at Camp "Robinson s Farm" later the scene of Arnold s treason and there the

troops continued work on the "North" and "Middle" redoubts, and engaged in daily drills. Some 
of the orders issued at this camp are of interest. Thus Division Orders for Aug. 20, 7!t: 

"Brigadier Genl. Huntington directs that in future the Drum is not to beat on marching parties of Fatigue to or from 
Work, but that they march with Musick of the Fife only, as the Drum, tho a noble Instrument of War like Musick, is 
designed more particularly for signals to Regulate duty and marches with arms." 

Wing Orders, Mandeville s, Sept. 3, 79: 

"Six men acquainted with blowing & spliting rocks are to be selected from the Connecticut Line for that service 
they are to be daily employed in clearing the bomb proofs in the Middle & North redoubts until that business is Compleated 
under the Superintendency of Capt. Starr of the C" Conn 1 Regt. who is appointed to that duty." 

Maj. Throop and Capt. Eliphalet Holmes, of the 1st Regt., were detailed to superintend the 
works in general. 

"October 21, 1779. 

A subaltern & 20 men from the Conn Line to be ordered to the fatigue party under the Direction of Col. Kosciosko 
near St. Antonae Nose "... 

Wing orders for Oct. 22d read as follows: 

"It is with particular satisfaction the Major General [Heath J Beheld the Regularity & soldierlike behaviour of the 
Troops of the Connecticut Line at Exercise yesterday ifc he has the pleasure to acquaint them that the Baron Steuben the 
Inspector Genl. publickly acknowledged that they have made as great proficiency in performing the Exercise and manouvres 
as any Troops without exception in the Army. A few things only Remain to be Learnt & practiced to make them finished 
Soldiers, & the Mag r Genl. Haters himself that by the attention of the officers and ready obediancc of the Soldiers these will 
soon be acquired." 

Steuben, however, was a rigid disciplinarian, and on another occasion, in a formal report, he 
very sharply criticised nearly all the troops in the army, being as severe upon the Connecticut 
Division as any. Where praise was merited he gave it, as in the case of Col. S. B. Webb s Regt. 
which he had lately inspected in Rhode Island. 

"This Regt.," he reports, "is divided into 7 comp" & is too weak to form a bntallion, the only fault I find with the 
Regt. it being for the first Review the best in order of any Regt. in the Army. Their arms are a model. The officers take 
the greatest pains with their men. The Regt. marches perfectly, and has truly a military air. Maj r Huntington who com 
mands the Regt. deserves particular attention for the superior order in which he has kept the Regt. The officers have not 
yet received their Commissions & I cannot but interest myself for a Corps who have so eminently distinguished themselves." 

Camp at Peekskill, 70. About Oct. 21 the enemy destroyed and abandoned their posts at 
Stony and Verplanck s Points. The Connecticut Line wa,s accordingly ordered to move down the 
river to the vicinity of King s Ferry which thus passed into American hands again. Maj. Walbridge, 
of the Second Regt., " with the village picket" was the first to re-occupy Verplanck s. The change 
of camp was made under Wing orders of Oct. 20 : 

"The Connecticut Division is to march early to morrow morning and encamp at below Peekskill. The Reveille to be con 
sidered as the General ; the Assembly to beat at half past 8 o clock in the 1" Brigade & the Brigade to march immediately. The 
Assembly to beat at 9 o clock in the 2 nd Brigade and the Troops to march as soon as possible. The first; Brigade will halt at the Vil 
lage until the 2 " comes up when they arc to join & march to their new camp in Division. 

150 men properly officered are to be left under the command of Major Throop [Fourth Regt. ] for the purpose of Com- 
pleating the Redoubts on the Heights. The fascine parties are also to be left . . . Major Throop will endeavor to have the 
works Compleated as soon as possible and report when they are finished." 

Details from the Division under direction of Col. Gouvion, engineer, proceeded to repair the 
works evacuated by the enemy ; the troops, also, in fitting up their new quarters levied on the 
straw of the neighborhood, calling forth Orders for the Second Brigade as follows, October 27 : 

"The commanding officer of the Brigade is very much surprised after repeated orders have been given against a wanton 
destruction of private property to have Complaints of that kind so soon after coming on the Ground. He does in the most pointed 
and positive manner forbid anything of the kind & is determined to punish every transgression of the kind with the utmost severity. 
Commanding officers of the Regts. are required immediately to make strict search in their respective Regiments for the article of 
wheat and confine every man with any found, and order the wheat back where it was taken." 



134 CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

For the 29th of October, Wing Orders read : 

"General Parsons will please to order sueli guards & Picquets as may be necessary for the Security of the Camp 
between Verplank s point & the New Bridge on Croton River. 

The Major General desires the exertions of the officers of all ranks to expedite the repairs of the works at the Points they 
will soon be relieved on the West side of the river by other troops. 

The Connecticut Division has made great proficiency in the exercise & manoeuvres. the Major Gen l is anxious that they 
not only retain what they have already acquired but that they continue their endeavours to complete themselves in Discipline ; the 
exercise must therefore be daily attended by the troops off duty & if any Brigade cannot form a Battalion the two must join at 
some convenient place in the center. IA. Col. Grosveuor will please to report what guards are mounted and where." 



Wing Orders, November :>, 



"Should it at any time be necessary while the Troops remain in their present encampment to make an alarm, it will be 
announced by the Discharge of three cannon which are to lie fired by order of the On 1 at such time Commanding on the Grounds. 
If the order is given to the Commanding officer of Artillery in Gen 1 Howe s Division he will turn the muzle of the cannon toward 
the Conn Division. In such Case the officer Commanding the Artillery in the first Conn Brigade will repete the alarm by the Dis 
charge of 3 Cannon. Should the alarm be first fired in the Conn Division it is to be repeated by Gen 1 Howe s. 

On the alarm being made the Troops will instantly parade completely ready for action, the waggoners put their horses to the 
waggons, and the whole be ready to execute such orders as may be given them." 

No boat is to pass down the River below Verplank s or Stony Point without a written pass signed by some General officer 
being on board. 

The firing of Guns at game in the vicinity of Camp or in the river is strictly forbidden ; the officers of all guards and 
Picquets and the officers Commanding the guard boats will see this order strictly observed." 

From Peek-skill to Morrifttown, X. J. As the season advanced the subject of Winter quarters 
engaged Washington s attention. He determined, as in the previous year, to station the greater part 
of his force in New Jersey, witli brigades posted at West Point and the Highlands. The Connecticut 
Division, the whole or a portion of which had heretofore wintered east of the Hudson, was this 
season to encamp with the main army. In accordance with this arrangement orders were issued 
from Wing Head Quarters, November 17th and 18th, to break up camp at Peekskill and begin the 
march into New Jersey. Orders of the 18th were as follows : 

"The Connecticut Division to move over Hudson s River to-morrow k Cam]) as near Stony Point as they can find good wood 
and water. While the army remains at Haverstraw they are to furnish the Captains Guard at the Ferry, and General Howe s 
Division the other. 

This move to the west side of the Hudson was delayed until the 25th, when the Division 
crossed and encamped near Haverstraw. Gen. Heath remaining in the Highlands, the Division, 
with Gen. Parsons in command, came immediately under Washington s orders. On the 27th the 
Division encamped at night near Kakeat, on ground previously marked out by the Quartermasters. 
Parsons took up his quarters at Judge Cox s house. On the 28th the march was continued to 
Ramapaugh, and on the 29th and 30th to Persipanny. On December 1st orders read: 

"The Division will march to-morrow morning to the grounds assigned for Winter quarters." 

Before marching from the Highlands, Washington issued the following order, dated " Head 
Quarters West Point, Nov. 19, 1779," respecting the new winter quarters: 

"Upon the arrival of the troops destined to quarter in New Jersey on the ground upon which they are to Hut.. the space 
allotted for each Brigade will be pointed out by the Quarter Master Genl who will furnish a plan of the intended dimcntions of the 
soldiers Huts, in the construction of which it is expected that a minute attention will be paid to the plan. 

As conveinency, health and every good consequence will result from a perfect uniformity in the Camp, the Commander-ra- 
Chief takes this previous opportunity of assuring that any hut not exactly conformable to the Plan or the least out of the line shall 
be pulled down and built again agreeable to the Model of this plan. The Commanding officers of Brigades will pay strict 
attention to this order." 

Winter-Quarters, Morrifttoirn. The Connecticut Division was assigned to grounds below Mor- 
ristown. A young Windham County schoolmaster, Ebenezer Fitch, describes the site as follows 
date, Jan. 4, 80:

"Week before last I visited the camp, and had the pleasure of seeing many old and some dear friends. I found the 
Log-house city on the declivity of a high hill, three miles south of Morristown. There the Connecticut line dwells in taber 
nacles like Israel of old. And there the troops of the other States lie, some at a greater and some at a less distance among 
the hills in similar habitations." 

Lieut. -Col. Sumner, of the Fourth Regiment, superintended the construction of the huts for the 
Division. The grand parade of the army was to be "in the field between the Pennsylvania & 
York encampments," and the following, under Washington s orders of December 17th, was to be 
regarded as the general line of battle :

Hut building, camp duties, and details, was the daily routine through December. On one day 
a sergeant and twelve men are sent to Pluckamin to cut wood for the Hospital ; again, a corporal s 
guard to the forage yard at Vealtown ; another to the White House to look after commissary stores, 
etc. How men were disciplined for minor offences in camp appears from the following regimental 
order issued by Capt. Brigham, then commanding the Eighth Regt., dated Dec. 31, 1770 : 

"At a Regimental C ort Martial heldeby order of Capt" Brigham Dec. 31 Capt" Comstock Pres. d " " : Tried James Foster 
<fc John Frame of Capt" Hodge s Co. for absenting themselves from Camp 2 days without Liberty : 

Plead guilty of being absent 2 Days but slept in camp each night. 

The Cort after considering their crime Do sentence them to receive 10 Lashes each on their naked Backs. But as Frame is 
now confin d for his tirst offence, and the Cort having a view to the Wound the Whip inflicts on the character of a young soldier 
do recommend it to the officer Commanding the Regt. to forgive him and rcminde him of the Evil consequences of such Company 
& Conduct. 

The Com 1 "" Approves of the Judgment of the Court and Directs that y Part respecting James Foster be put in Execution 
this evening at Role Call. But having the most tender feeling for the correction of a young soldier is induced to Pardon John 
Frame, But earnestly Recommends it to him in future to Shun all bad company and not be guilty of a like offence againc. 

RECORD FOR 1780. 

The Morristown Huts. Severe Winter. Hardly had the troops completed their huts before a 
winter of unusual severity set in the most trying experienced during the Revolution. It was long 
known as the famous winter of 1780, when cold, hunger, and want of clothing caused the greatest 
suffering among the troops. The distress is described in letters from camp. Major Huntington, of 
Col. S. B. Webb s Regiment, in Stark s Brigade 011 the second Line, writes under date of December 
24, 1779 : 

"... You will by the date perceive that we are in camp, tho expect, if good weather, to have the men s Hutts so far 
compleated that they may go into them on Sunday or Monday. The officers Hutts are not begun, nor will they be meddled with 
till after the men have finished theirs. The severity of the weather hath been such that the men have suffcr d much without shoes 
and stockings, and working half leg deep in snow. ..." 

Capt. Joseph Walker, of the same Regiment, writing under date February (i, 1780, says : 

"... I left the Reg the 21st day of last month and am happy to say in much better circumstances at that time than 
they had been for weeks before. Our situation in regard to Provision was such I never wish to see again. Short commons ever 
ought to be avoided & when it cannot the consequences are to be dreaded in the army that you know. However I can with 
pleasure inform you (& what I think will give you no small satisfaction), that the Lads bore it with the greatest patience and forti 
tude. We considered the severity of the season, the difficulty of transportation, and were willing to make all allowance possible. 

" After our long march [from Peekskill] you may well think our men were rather destitute of cloathing ; after our arrival 
we began and completed our Ilutts which destroyed our cloathing still more & to my certain knowledge we had not more than Fifty 
men in the Reg return 1 fit for duty, many a good Lad with nothing to cover him from his hips to his toes save his Blanket. ..." 



136 CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

Assistant Commissary of Purchases, Royal Flint, described the situation as follows to Governor 

Trumbull : 

"MoRiiiSTOWN, .Tan y 6, 1780. 

" . . . Tho distress of the army for several days past hardly admits of a description. It is a melancholy fact that the 
troops, both officers and men, have almost perished for want of provisions. In many instances the extremity has been so severe as 
to prompt them to commit depredations on the property of the inhabitants. This sudden calamity was occasioned by the early 
commencement and unusual rigor of the winter, attended by heavy and repeated falls of snow. By these obstructions transportation 
was so delayed that the magazines in the vicinity were exhausted before relief could be drawn from the more distant resources. In 
this unfortunate situation the Commander-in-Chief has been compelled to lay the Contiguous Country under a contribution, obliging 
the inhabitants to furnish a certain quantity of provisions within a special time. This expedient, however, is only to produce a 
temporary succour, and will cease its operation as soon as the ordinary chanclls of supply are open. I think there is a tolerable 
prospect of flour from the Southern States, but our principal dependence for meat, as heretofore, rests on Connecticut. As Col. 
Champion has expressed his fears of not continuing the supplies, I am persuaded your Legislature will consider a circumstance that 
merits their attention. The most material obstruction in his way is the want of cash, and I feel no probability of a speedy and 
adequate remedy to this evil from the Continental Treasury. I must therefore request your Excellency to represent our circumstances 
to your Legislature, and I am convinced they have both ability and inclination to adopt regulations suitable to our exigencies. Your 
state has exhibited too many proofs of its attachment to the army to make me doubt of its aid on the present occasion." 

From Morristoivn to the Out-posts. Gen. St. Clair Commanding. Toward the beginning of 
February Washington found it necessary to strengthen the "lines" or outposts in the vicinity of 
Elizabeth and Newark, and the Connecticut Brigades were detached for that duty. The first order 
they received, dated Headquarters, near Morristown, Feb. 1, 1780, read in brief: 

"The Connecticut Division to be held in perfect readiness to march at the shortest notice." 

The Division at this time was temporarily under the command of General Arthur St. Clair, of 
Pennsylvania, both Gens. Parsons and Huntington, with many other officers of the army, being 
absent sick or on furlough. St. Clair had for some time been in command of the advanced parties, 
and it was at his suggestion that a full Division was ordered down to reinforce him. The move to 
the outposts was made on February 3d under the following order of the 3d: 

"The Division will march to-morrow morning at 7 o clock with two days Provisions Cook d. The Brigade Qr. Masters 
will provide Carriage* to transport such baggage as may be necessary & apply to the Command" of Brigades for direction. A 
Subaltern from each Brigade to remain in Camp with those who are unable to march, to take charge of the Hutts and such baggage 
as may be left." 

On the 3d the Division was at Springfield orders as follows: 

"A Detachm 1 from the Connec Line to parade to-morrow morning at Sunrise near the Meeting House with four Days Provis 
ions. Maj. Throop will be the field officer of the Command." 

Division orders, February 5th : 

"The 1" Brigade will inarch to-morrow morning at 8 o clock to Wcstfield to parade at the Meeting House. Those men of 
the2 cl Brigade who have been on Command with Col. Gray & now at Westfield will join their Brigade at this Post. Camp Guards 
will be mounted this evening & Patrole the Streets & no Soldier to be out of Quarters after 9 o clock. In case of an alarm the 
Troops will parade at the Meeting House." 

Orders, Second Brigade, Colonel Isaac Sherman commanding, Westfield, N. J., February 5, 1780: 

" In case of an Alarm the Troops will Parade at the Meeting House. It is desir d that both officers & men be particularly 
attentive & that no one is absent from Quarters after 7 in the evening. 

Till further orders, the Troops will lie upon their arms every night, Parade at 4 in the Morning & Continue Paraded till Sun- 
Kise in front of their Quarters. The Commission d officers will Quarter Contiguous to the men & a N. C. officer with each partic 
ular squad at quarters.

Patroll for giving notice of an alarm: also a Corp 1 & men at John Little s Tavern to Patrole in front of the Troops Quarters 
towards Woodbridge & Amboy. 

An officer to visit the quarters of the men at night & see that they comply with the above orders. The 8 h Reg to keep

Division orders, Springfield, February 10th: 

"A corporal & six men to be sent to the Mountain [Orange] to take charge of a piece of ordnance. He will call on Mr. 
Caklwell at Springfield who will give him directions respecting the fixed signals to proclaim an alarm." 

Baron DeKalb Commanding. Division Orders, Springfield, March 2, 1780: 

" The Baron DeKalb in Relieving Gen 1 St. Clair at this Post finds himself happy in the satisfaction Genl St. Clair express d 
to him of the good order of Discipline & Vigilance of the Officers & men of this Division. The Baron has no doubt of their con 
tinuance therein. He is of opinion that all the Dispositions made by Gcnl. St. Clair by his order issued 3d [4th] of Feb.y ought to 
be observ d with no other difference than that the Gcnl Rendevous should be at Springfield instead of Westfield the reason of cov 
ering the Forage at Quibbletown being remov d with the magazine & Springfield being much nearer Morristown and in the Centre 
of the line." 

Division Orders, Springfield, March 8th : 

"Those Parties which Patrole to Amboy, are not to be sent to that Place, while the Commissioners for the exchange of 
Prisoners are sitting there, as it is to be considered a neutral Place till the Business is finished. 

The officer Commanding the Guard from which they are furnish d will govern himself accordingly." 

"D. O. March 10, 1780. 

As there is no flour to be had at present the Roads being bad renders it impossible to transport it the issuing Commis- 
sarys of the Connecticut Division are till further orders to issue 1 Rj $ of good Indian meal instead of Ration of flour." 

Brigade Orders, Second Brigade, Westfield, March 18, 1780 : 

"As it is probable that the Enemy intend a movement this way soon the Command desires the troops to assemble every 
morning at 4 o clock on their Regimental parade & continue under arms until Sim Rise : the men arc always to have their packs 
neatly done up and to parade with them. As it is of importance that the troops should be as compact as possible the Regimental 
Qr. Mrs. are desired to inspect the Quarters of the men and Report to the Command 1 what numbers Can be Conveniently Quartered 
at each house, having regard to the families & those houses nighest the Meeting House." 

DeKalb to the Connecticut Division. Springfield, N. J.. April :{, 1780: 

Major General the Baron de Kail) is relieved by Brig. General Huntington. 

The Baron returns his warmest thanks and acknowledgments to the Connecticut Division for their Constant zeal & vigi 
lance for the security of the Lines, their orderly Behaviour in regard to the Inhabitants & their Readiness & truly military spirit 
manifested in everything Concerning the service." 

General Huntington in Command. Recruiting the " Line. "-- During the spring and summer 
of 1780 the term of the "three years" men, enlisted in 1777, expired, and measures were taken to fill 
their places. Some were induced to re-enlist, but it became necessary to call for levies for nine 
months to fill the depleted ranks. Lists of these levies are appended to the several regiments in 
the rosters. Division Orders, April 2d, are as follows : 

"As many of the Companies arc small & some of them without officers, commanding officers of Regts <fe Brigades will cause 
two or three companies to be joined together for the present: All the Capt n " & Sub 1 " except one to each company, so joined, are 
desired to repair to Connec on the Recruiting service; to observe such Directions as they shall receive from Governor Trumbull. 

Commanding officers of Brigades will if possible quarter their troops in fewer houses nearer together. All the men are to be 
furnished with 40 rounds each, & are to be Daily examined. Conductors are to keep the Complement good from time to time. 
Capt" Alden of the 2 1 Regt. is app Aid de Camp to Gen 1 Huntington, to be obeyed accordingly." 

Division After-Orders, April 7, 1780: 

" The Gen 1 Assembly of the State of Connecticut anxiously desirous of engaging for the war those old and faithful servants 
whose Terms of Service arc for three years only, have Commissioned Col" Chandler [late of the 8 th Regt.] to repair to Camp for that 
purpose. The Capt" and sub ns of the Division will be pleased (if not already acquainted) to inform themselves from Col. Chandler 
of the Bounties & encouragements offer d by the State besides those given by Congress: they will then invite every man, whose 
engagement is of shorter duration, to reinlist for the war, using their utmost influence to persuade them to comply with the earnest 
wishes of their Country in this respect. The Genl with pleasure makes known to the troops that the army Committee at Wethersfield 
have informed Colo. Chandler by Letter that they have made good progress in the settlement of the army accounts; that there will 
be a neat ballance of 50 good money Due to each Soldier, & that the Committee have reason to think the settlement will be 
speedily Completed to the satisfaction of the Army. In addition to the pecuniary consideration the Soldiers who reengage for the 
war may be indulged with a Furlough till the first of June next. Every Soldier will reflect that his own Safety & Freedom is 
involved in Defence of the Country & event of the war. The officers will make report of the success they meet with at orderly 
time next Monday to the Sub-Inspector who will make report of this order & its effects to Col. Chandler by Monday night,

CONNECTICUT IN THE REVOLUTION. 

Orders Second Brigade, Westfield, April 10, 1780: 

" The officers of the Line are to send for their Espontoons & in future to make use of them on Duty : if any Espontoons should 
want repairing they must be done without Delay. 

The Comn d " of the Brigade recalls the officers & soldiers to the order of the 7 lh inst. Col Chandler will set out for Con-

A settlement is now taking place as fast as the Comnd"" can push the accounts; when compleated proper securities will be 
given. Fifty Dollars extra shall be given to the first effective man who will inlist." 

From Morristoum to the Highlands. Kef ore leaving the outposts and winter quarters in New 
Jersey, a portion of the Division repeated their protest against ill-treatment made at Redding the 
winter before, but the disturbance was quelled largely by the prompt action of Col. Meigs then in 
Command of the 1" Brigade. Washington wrote him a note of acknowledgment, May 29, 80, in 
which he said: 



"I am very much obliged to you for your exertions upon the firW.lippearance of a proceeding of so dangerous a nature 
& for your conduct throughout the whole of it. Mutiny, as you very properly observe, cannot in any case be justified, but 
still if the Commissaries by a Partiality of Issues, have in any degree given ground of Complaint they shall be called to 
account for it. 

The Southern troops being ordered South under Gates and DeKalb, Washington remained in 
New Jersey until the latter part of June, awaiting the enemy s movements. Meanwhile he arranged 
his order of Battle as follows date "Headquarters, Short Hills, June 7, 1780": 



ADVANCE CORPS.

Maj. Gen. Steuben. 

The Connecticut Division at this time was encamped at " Kimbol s Farms," N. J., and about 
June 20th marched to the Highlands and halted for a few days at Buttermilk Falls on the west side 
of the Hudson. On June 28-29, it crossed to Nelson s Point on the East side and took post on the 
old grounds near Robinson s House quite familiar to it. Gen. Huntington s quarters were near 
"Mr. Neillson s House." 

Movements against the Enemy. In July, Sir Henry Clinton, who had lately returned from 
South Carolina, organized an expedition against the French contingent at Newport, R. I. To defeat 
his object Washington at once prepared to make a demonstration in force towards New York. 
Orders indicate that no time was to be lost. Thus, "Head Quarters Highlands, 28 July 1780": 

"... The New York, Connecticut & Massachusetts Brigades are to be got in readiness to march with the utmost dis 
patch. The exertions of the officers on this occasion are earnestly enjoined. The occasion Calls for expedition. It is warmly & 
in the most pointed manner recommended to them to divest themselves of as much baggage as possible, & lodge it at West Point, 
or where else they choose " 

Orders for the 1st Connecticut Brigade, July 30th : 

"The Com din officers of Regts. are to have everything in perfect readiness to march at the shortest notice, as no order 
will be given till the moment of marching." 

On the same day, the 30th, the troops moved down the river to Peekskill, and remained there 
until Aug. . 3d. They were to continue their march towards King s Bridge, but learning that Clinton 
had gone no further than Huntington Bay, L. I., and had apparently relinquished his design against 
the French, Washington re-crossed the Hudson with his entire force to carry out his own plan of

campaign. This plan contemplated a grand reconnoisance down the west side of the river toward 
Bergen and Staten Island, in the course of which it was expected that an opportunity would offer 
of striking at the northern end of New York Island. For this object many boats were collected and 
a fine corps of Light Infantry organized under Lafayette for rapid movements. The general "Order 
of Battle " for these operations was announced by Washington Aug. 1, 1780, while the army was at 
Peekskill, as follows:

His EXCELLENCY, GENERAL WASHINGTON, COMMANDER-IN-CHIEP. 

This was a highly efficient force and by its manoeuvres practically challenged the enemy to 
meet it, but Clinton kept himself in New York. Lafayette moved down beyond Bergen and gath 
ered forage within sight of the enemy, while the main force halted at the "Liberty Pole", back of 
Ft. Lee. The summer, however, passed without any stirring event. 

While encamped near the "Liberty Pole," Washington issued the following order, Aug. 23, 80: 

" The army being now very near the Enemy the General flatters himself every officer and soldier will make it a point of 
honour as well as duty to keep constantly in Camp & to be at the shortest notice ready to act as circumstances may require. He is 
at the same time persuaded, should an opportunity be afforded us, that every part of the army will vie with each other in the 
display of that conduct, fortitude & bravery which ought to distinguish Troops fighting for their Country, for Liberty, for every 
thing dear to the citizen or soldier " 

Colors of the Connecticut Line. Among the camp orders issued to the Conn. Division during 
these movements was the following, dated Sept. 10, 80 : 

"Regulations for Regimental colours in the Connecticut Line. 

" The ground of each to be different each to bear the number of the Regt, in Large characters : the devise on one side, 
the Conn Arms on the other, the devise and motto of the 30 Dollar Bills. If the ground of [any] two colours should be so 
alike as not to be distinguishable 3 or 400 yards, a small field of 13 stripes in the Lower Quarter of one of them may serve as a 
distinction." 

Arnold s Treason. From Bergen and the Liberty Pole, the army then fell back to Steenrapie, 
and Orangetown, N. Y. It was at the latter place, some forty miles south of West Point, that the 
troops first heard of the treason and flight of Arnold on Sept. 25th. Gen. Greene was then tempo 
rarily in command, and on the 26th he announced the fact in the General Orders. Published and 
manuscript letters show that no officers denounced Arnold in severer terms than those of the " Con 
necticut Line." 

Upon discovery of the treason two Pennsylvania Brigades and Meigs Gth Connecticut Regi 
ment were at once ordered to West Point to meet any attack the enemy may have intended through 
Arnold s cooperation. The arrest of Maj. Andre, the enemy s principal agent in the conspiracy, was 

On Ang. 3d, Arnold, at his own request, was relieved and given the command of West Point. Maj.-Gen. Lord Stirling succeeded to the command of the 

left wing.

due largely to the good judgment and promptness of Maj. Benjamin Tallmadge of Sheldon s Dra 
goons. The Board which tried Andre was composed of the General Officers of the Army, including 
Gens. Parsons and Huntington of the Connecticut Division. 

Winter Quarters, "Connecticut Village."- - Late in the fall the army again and for the fourth 
time since the organization of the " Continental Line," went into winter quarters. The Connecticut 
Division built huts near Robinson s Farm, and the encampment was called "Connecticut Village. 
A further description of it appears under heading D the next formation, 81-83. 

Consolidation of the "Line." At this camp the Regiments of the Connecticut Line" were 
consolidated for a new formation which had been ordered by Congress. This also will be more 
particularly noticed under heading D. 

The following are the rosters of the Continental Staff and the Regiments of the "Line" 
for 1777- 81 :
